Subject: Re: [RFC PATCH 02/13] net: dsa: implement a central TX reallocation procedure

Hi Vladimir,

thank you very much for bringing some progress into this.

I tried to test on top of latest net-next, but I currently get a linker error (not  related to this):
arch/arm/vfp/vfphw.o: in function `vfp_support_entry':
arch/arm/vfp/vfphw.S:85:(.text+0xa): relocation truncated to fit: R_ARM_THM_JUMP19 against symbol `vfp_kmode_exception' defined in .text.unlikely section in arch/arm/vfp/vfpmodule.o

So continued testing of your series (with all updates) and my PTP work on top
of net-next from 2020-10-14.

Debugging shows that these values are correct for my device (0/5).

Can "needed_tailroom" be used equivalently for dsa_device_ops::tail_tag?

You may remove the second max() statement (around needed_tailroom). This would
size the reallocated skb more exactly to the size actually required an may save
some RAM (already tested too).

Alternatively I suggest moving the max() statements up in order to completely
avoid negative values for needed_headroom / needed_tailroom:

	needed_headroom = max(needed_headroom - skb_headroom(skb), 0);
	needed_tailroom = max(needed_tailroom - skb_tailroom(skb), 0);

	if (likely(needed_headroom == 0 && needed_tailroom == 0 &&
		   !skb_cloned(skb)))
		/* No reallocation needed, yay! */
		return 0;
	...
	err = pskb_expand_head(skb, needed_headroom, needed_tailroom, GFP_ATOMIC);

This is correct but looks misleading for me. What about...
	if (err < 0)
		return err;

	return padlen ? __skb_put_padto(skb, ETH_ZLEN, false) : 0;
