Subject: [net-next 14/16] net/mlx5e: Improve the MTU change shortcut

From: Maxim Mikityanskiy <>

Normally, the MTU change requires reopening the channels, but it can be
skipped if the new MTU doesn't change any of the queue parameters and if
MTU is not used in the data path.

The shortcut is applicable to the non-linear mode of striding RQ,
because the only thing affected by MTU is the queue length. As ethtool
sets the queue length in packets, but striding RQ length is defined in
strides or bytes, we estimate the RQ length to be at least as big as the
requested number of MTU-sized packets, that's why it depends on MTU.

Improve the shortcut by actually checking whether the RQ length stayed
the same, instead of an intermediate step in the calculation.

As MTU also affects the SHAMPO parameters, skip the shortcut if SHAMPO
is in use.
