Correct, and i40e/ice does the same ("per_ring_budget").

As for budget << XSK_NAPI_MULT vs replacing; Replacing the budget is 
more in line with what the drivers do for the Tx cleanup 
(xxx_clean_tx_irq), where the napi budget is discarded completely; 
Again, with the idea that "this is much cheaper than a "per-packet 
through the stack".

Do you prefer the multiplier way that you describe?


Cheers,
Björn
