Subject: [PATCH v7 net-next 0/5] Analyze and Reorganize core Networking
 Structs to optimize cacheline consumption

Currently, variable-heavy structs in the networking stack is organized
chronologically, logically and sometimes by cacheline access.

This patch series attempts to reorganize the core networking stack
variables to minimize cacheline consumption during the phase of data
transfer. Specifically, we looked at the TCP/IP stack and the fast
path definition in TCP.

For documentation purposes, we also added new files for each core data
structure we considered, although not all ended up being modified due
to the amount of existing cacheline they span in the fast path. In
the documentation, we recorded all variables we identified on the
fast path and the reasons. We also hope that in the future when
variables are added/modified, the document can be referred to and
updated accordingly to reflect the latest variable organization.

Tested:
Our tests were run with neper tcp_rr using tcp traffic. The tests have $cpu
number of threads and variable number of flows (see below).

Tests were run on 6.5-rc1

Efficiency is computed as cpu seconds / throughput (one tcp_rr round trip).
The following result shows efficiency delta before and after the patch
series is applied.

v5 changes:
1) removed snmp patch changes.
2) updated cache group size requirements. Chosen to not use cachelines
but actual sum of struct member sizes to not make assumptions on cacheline
sizes.

v6 changes:
1) fixed one comment.

v7 changes:
1) update netns check to within config and send in 6.7 cycle.
