Subject: [PATCH net v1 2/2] lan743x: boost performance: limit PCIe bandwidth requirement

From: Sven Van Asbroeck <thesven73@...il.com>

To support jumbo frames, each rx ring dma buffer is 9K in size.
But the chip only stores a single frame per dma buffer.

When the chip is working with the default 1500 byte MTU, a 9K
dma buffer goes from chip -> cpu per 1500 byte frame. This means
that to get 1G/s ethernet bandwidth, we need 6G/s PCIe bandwidth !

Fix by limiting the rx ring dma buffer size to the current MTU
size.

Tested with iperf3 on a freescale imx6 + lan7430, both sides
set to mtu 1500 bytes.

Before:
[ ID] Interval           Transfer     Bandwidth       Retr
[  4]   0.00-20.00  sec   483 MBytes   203 Mbits/sec    0
After:
[ ID] Interval           Transfer     Bandwidth       Retr
[  4]   0.00-20.00  sec  1.15 GBytes   496 Mbits/sec    0

And with both sides set to MTU 9000 bytes:
Before:
[ ID] Interval           Transfer     Bandwidth       Retr
[  4]   0.00-20.00  sec  1.87 GBytes   803 Mbits/sec   27
After:
[ ID] Interval           Transfer     Bandwidth       Retr
[  4]   0.00-20.00  sec  1.98 GBytes   849 Mbits/sec    0
