Subject: [PATCH 4.14 41/56] vhost-net: set packet weight of tx polling to 2 * vq size

From: haibinzhang(张海斌) <haibinzhang@...cent.com>

commit a2ac99905f1ea8b15997a6ec39af69aa28a3653b upstream.

handle_tx will delay rx for tens or even hundreds of milliseconds when tx busy
polling udp packets with small length(e.g. 1byte udp payload), because setting
VHOST_NET_WEIGHT takes into account only sent-bytes but no single packet length.

Ping-Latencies shown below were tested between two Virtual Machines using
netperf (UDP_STREAM, len=1), and then another machine pinged the client:

vq size=256

Seems pretty consistent, a small dip at 2 VQ sizes.
Ring size is a hint from device about a burst size it can tolerate. Based on
benchmarks, set the weight to 2 * vq size.

To evaluate this change, another tests were done using netperf(RR, TX) between
two machines with Intel(R) Xeon(R) Gold 6133 CPU @ 2.50GHz, and vq size was
tweaked through qemu. Results shown below does not show obvious changes.
