Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next-2.6] inet: rename some inet_sock fields

From: Eric Dumazet <>
Date: Thu, 15 Oct 2009 18:30:45 +0200

> In order to have better cache layouts of struct sock (separate zones
> for rx/tx paths), we need this preliminary patch.
> Goal is to transfert fields used at lookup time in the first
> read-mostly cache line (inside struct sock_common) and move sk_refcnt
> to a separate cache line (only written by rx path)
> This patch adds inet_ prefix to daddr, rcv_saddr, dport, num, saddr,
> sport and id fields. This allows a future patch to define these
> fields as macros, like sk_refcnt, without name clashes.
