Subject: [PATCH net-next 0/5] mlxsw: Add support for RED qevent "mark"

From: Ido Schimmel <>

Petr says:

The RED qdisc currently supports two qevents: "early_drop" and "mark". The
filters added to the block bound to the "early_drop" qevent are executed on
packets for which the RED algorithm decides that they should be
early-dropped. The "mark" filters are similarly executed on ECT packets
that are marked as ECN-CE (Congestion Encountered).

A previous patchset has offloaded "early_drop" filters on Spectrum-2 and
later, provided that the classifier used is "matchall", that the action
used is either "trap" or "mirred", and a handful or further limitations.

This patchset similarly offloads "mark" filters.

Patch set overview:

Patches #1 and #2 add the trap, under which packets will be reported to the
CPU, if the qevent filter uses the action "trap".

Patch #3 then recognizes FLOW_BLOCK_BINDER_TYPE_RED_MARK as a binder type,
and offloads the attached filters similarly to _EARLY_DROP.

Patch #4 cleans up some unused variables in a selftest, and patch #5 adds a
new selftest for the RED "mark" qevent offload.
