Commit Message

Linus Lüssing July 21, 2016, 9:38 p.m. UTC
Instead of latching onto the OGM period, this patch introduces a worker
dedicated to multicast TT and TVLV updates.

The reasoning is, that upon roaming especially the translation table
should be updated timely to minimize connectivity issues.

With BATMAN V, the idea is to greatly increase the OGM interval to
reduce overhead. Unfortunately, right now this could lead to
a bad user experience if multicast traffic is involved.

Therefore this patch introduces a fixed 500ms update interval for
multicast TT entries and the multicast TVLV.

Changes in RFC -> non-RFC:

* Move INIT_DELAYED_WORK() out of batadv_mcast_start_timer()
* lockdep fixes (fixes a lockdep warning):
  * Remove spinlock for tt.commit_lock in batadv_mcast_free()
  * Replace lockdep with WARN_ON(delayed_work_pending(...))
  -> we do not rely on tt-commit lock anymore
  * Clarify mla_list protection in kernel docs
* Now runtime tested
* Checked bat_events workqueue CPU usage:
  -> acc. to top, @500 bridged in mcast listeners, kworker/u2:0
     increased from ~0.3% to ~1.0% in kvm instance
     (bat_events kept slumbering at 0.0%)

PS: And as a side-effect, removes the funny locking dependency
with the TT commit lock. Had still been nagging me, this tight
coupling between MC and TT.

Protected by a workqueue item? How?

Kind regards,

Looks like you wanted to say here that it is only modified inside the worker 
queue (via the mcast.work delayed workqueue item) - unless it is not done this 
way like in batadv_mcast_free after cancel_delayed_work_sync.

Kind regards,
	Sven

Exactly :). I tried to "summarize" that a little to make it fit as an
inline comment ;). (although there are some further kerneldoc remarks on
the functions using it)

Is it ok now or do you think I should add something like your
explanation somewhere else?

I personally don't like the statement "protected by mcast.work". Maybe you can
add something like "see ...." to reference the functions/kernel-doc describing
why it "protects" it.

Kind regards,
