Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 0/7] net: ethernet: ti: cpsw: support placing CPDMA
 descriptors into DDR

> This series intended to add support for placing CPDMA descriptors into DDR by
> introducing new module parameter "descs_pool_size" to specify size of descriptor's
> pool. The "descs_pool_size" defines total number of CPDMA
> CPPI descriptors to be used for both ingress/egress packets
> processing. If not specified - the default value 256 will be used
> which will allow to place descriptor's pool into the internal CPPI
> RAM.
> In addition, added ability to re-split CPDMA pool of descriptors between RX and TX
> path via ethtool '-G' command wich will allow to configure and fix number
> of descriptors used by RX and TX path, which, then, will be split between
> RX/TX channels proportionally depending on number of RX/TX channels and
> its weight. 
> This allows significantly to reduce UDP packets drop rate
> for bandwidth >301 Mbits/sec (am57x).  
> Before enabling this feature, the am437x SoC has to be fixed as it's proved
> that it's not working when CPDMA descriptors placed in DDR.
> So, the patch 1 fixes this issue.

Series applied to net-next, thanks.
