Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 net-next] tcp: remove dst refcount false sharing for
 prequeue mode

From: Eric Dumazet <>
Date: Mon, 08 Sep 2014 14:30:42 -0700

> In the worst case, here is what is happening :
> sk_rx_dst is checked and invalidated in tcp_v4_do_rcv()
> Next packets coming from prequeue might then have a NULL dst, and
> we'll do nothing special (sk_rx_dst will stay NULL), because we do
> handle NULL dst properly in inet_sk_rx_dst_set() and
> inet6_sk_rx_dst_set() 
> But next packet to be processed (either in non prequeue mode or
> prequeue) will carry skb->dst and we will set sk->sk_rx_dst
> I decided to not copy/paste the tests we do in the family dependent
> parts, because it was not worth the pain.
