Subject: Three questions about busy poll

Hello,

While looking into the busy polling in Linux kernel, three questions
come into my mind:

1. In the document[1], it claims sysctl.net.busy_poll depends on
either SO_BUSY_POLL or sysctl.net.busy_read. However, from the code in
ep_set_busy_poll_napi_id(), I don't see such a dependency. It simply
checks sysctl_net_busy_poll and sk->sk_napi_id, but sk->sk_napi_id is
always set as long as we enable CONFIG_NET_RX_BUSY_POLL. So what I am
missing here?

2. Why there is no socket option for sysctl.net.busy_poll? Clearly
sysctl_net_busy_poll is global and SO_BUSY_POLL only works for
sysctl.net.busy_read.

3. How is SO_INCOMING_NAPI_ID supposed to be used? I can't find any
useful documents online. Any example or more detailed doc?


Thanks!
