Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next v2] qlcnic: use standard NAPI weights

From: Michal Schmidt <>
Date: Wed, 04 Sep 2013 15:03:05 +0200

> Since commit 82dc3c63 ("net: introduce NAPI_POLL_WEIGHT")
> netif_napi_add() produces an error message if a NAPI poll weight
> greater than 64 is requested.
> qlcnic requests the weight as large as 256 for some of its rings, and
> smaller values for other rings. For instance in qlcnic_82xx_napi_add()
> I think the intention was to give the tx+rx ring a bigger weight than
> to rx-only rings, but it's actually doing the opposite. So I'm assuming
> the weights do not really matter much.
> Just use the standard NAPI weights for all rings.
