Subject: [PATCH net-next v1 0/3] GVE Raw Addressing

This  patch set introduces "raw addressing" mode to the GVE driver.
Previously (in "queue_page_list" or "qpl" mode), the driver would
pre-allocate and dma_map buffers to be used on egress and ingress.
On egress, it would copy data from the skb provided to the
pre-allocated buffers - this was expensive.
In raw addressing mode, the driver can avoid this copy and simply
dma_map the skb's data so that the NIC can use it.
On ingress, the driver passes buffers up to the networking stack and
then frees and reallocates buffers when necessary instead of using

Catherine Sullivan (3):
  gve: Add support for raw addressing device option
  gve: Add support for raw addressing to the rx path
  gve: Add support for raw addressing in the tx path
