Subject: [PATCH net-next 0/2] Make [IP6]GRE[TAP] devices always NETIF_F_LLTX

From: Peilin Ye <>

Hi all,

This patchset depends on these fixes [1].  Since o_seqno is now atomic_t,
we can always turn on NETIF_F_LLTX for [IP6]GRE[TAP] devices, since we no
longer need the TX lock (&txq->_xmit_lock).

We could probably do the same thing to [IP6]ERSPAN devices as well, but
I'm not familiar with them yet.  For example, ERSPAN devices are
initialized as |= GRE_FEATURES in erspan_tunnel_init(), but I don't see
IP6ERSPAN devices being initialized as |= GRE6_FEATURES.  Please suggest
if I'm missing something, thanks!

  ip_gre: Make GRE and GRETAP devices always NETIF_F_LLTX
  ip6_gre: Make IP6GRE and IP6GRETAP devices always NETIF_F_LLTX
