Subject: [PATCH net-next 00/13] mlxsw: Rework matchall offloading plumbing

From: Ido Schimmel <>

Jiri says:

Currently the matchall and flower are handled by registering separate
callbacks in mlxsw. That leads to faulty indication "in_hw_count 2" in
filter show command for every inserted flower filter. That happens
because matchall callback just blindly returns 0 for it and it is
wrongly accounted for as "the offloader".

I inspected different ways to fix this problem. The only clean solution
is to rework handling of matchall in mlxsw a bit. The driver newely
registers one callback for bound block which is called for both matchall
and flower filter insertions.

On the way, iron out the matchall code a bit, push it into a separate
file etc.

Jiri Pirko (13):
  mlxsw: spectrum_acl: Move block helpers into inline header functions
  mlxsw: spectrum: Rename acl_block to flow_block
  mlxsw: spectrum: Push flow_block related functions into a separate
  mlxsw: spectrum: Push matchall bits into a separate file
  mlxsw: spectrum_acl: Use block variable in mlxsw_sp_acl_rule_del()
  mlxsw: spectrum_matchall: Pass mall_entry as arg to
  mlxsw: spectrum_matchall: Pass mall_entry as arg to
  mlxsw: spectrum_matchall: Move ingress indication into mall_entry
  mlxsw: spectrum_matchall: Push per-port rule add/del into separate
  mlxsw: spectrum: Avoid copying sample values and use RCU pointer
    direcly instead
  mlxsw: spectrum_matchall: Process matchall events from the same cb as
  mlxsw: spectrum: Move flow offload binding into spectrum_flow.c
  selftests: forwarding: add matchall mirror test
