Subject: [bpf-next V6 PATCH 00/15] XDP redirect memory return API

This patchset works towards supporting different XDP RX-ring memory
allocators.  As this will be needed by the AF_XDP zero-copy mode.

The patchset uses mlx5 as the sample driver, which gets implemented
XDP_REDIRECT RX-mode, but not ndo_xdp_xmit (as this API is subject to
change thought the patchset).

A new struct xdp_frame is introduced (modeled after cpumap xdp_pkt).
And both ndo_xdp_xmit and the new xdp_return_frame end-up using this.

Support for a driver supplied allocator is implemented, and a
refurbished version of page_pool is the first return allocator type
introduced.  This will be a integration point for AF_XDP zero-copy.

The mlx5 driver evolve into using the page_pool, and see a performance
increase (with ndo_xdp_xmit out ixgbe driver) from 6Mpps to 12Mpps.

The patchset stop at the 15 patches limit, but more API changes are
planned.  Specifically extending ndo_xdp_xmit and xdp_return_frame
APIs to support bulking.  As this will address some known limits.

V2: Updated according to Tariq's feedback
V3: Updated based on feedback from Jason Wang and Alex Duyck
V4: Updated based on feedback from Tariq and Jason
V5: Fix SPDX license, add Tariq's reviews, improve patch desc for perf test
V6: Updated based on feedback from Eric Dumazet and Alex Duyck


Jesper Dangaard Brouer (15):
      mlx5: basic XDP_REDIRECT forward support
      xdp: introduce xdp_return_frame API and use in cpumap
      ixgbe: use xdp_return_frame API
      xdp: move struct xdp_buff from filter.h to xdp.h
      xdp: introduce a new xdp_frame type
      tun: convert to use generic xdp_frame and xdp_return_frame API
      virtio_net: convert to use generic xdp_frame and xdp_return_frame API
      bpf: cpumap convert to use generic xdp_frame
      mlx5: register a memory model when XDP is enabled
      xdp: rhashtable with allocator ID to pointer mapping
      page_pool: refurbish version of page_pool code
      xdp: allow page_pool as an allocator type in xdp_return_frame
      mlx5: use page_pool for xdp_return_frame call
      xdp: transition into using xdp_frame for return API
      xdp: transition into using xdp_frame for ndo_xdp_xmit
