    net: netprio_cgroup: rework update socket logic · 406a3c63
    John Fastabend authored
    Instead of updating the sk_cgrp_prioidx struct field on every send
    this only updates the field when a task is moved via cgroup
    This allows sockets that may be used by a kernel worker thread
    to be managed. For example in the iscsi case today a user can
    put iscsid in a netprio cgroup and control traffic will be sent
    with the correct sk_cgrp_prioidx value set but as soon as data
    is sent the kernel worker thread isssues a send and sk_cgrp_prioidx
    is updated with the kernel worker threads value which is the
    default case.
    It seems more correct to only update the field when the user
    explicitly sets it via control group infrastructure. This allows
    the users to manage sockets that may be used with other threads.
