packet: Add GSO/csum offload support.
This patch adds GSO/checksum offload to af_packet sockets using virtio_net_hdr. Based on Rusty's patch to add this support to tun. It allows GSO/checksum offload to be enabled when using raw socket backend with virtio_net. Adds PACKET_VNET_HDR socket option to prepend virtio_net_hdr in the receive path and process/skip virtio_net_hdr in the send path. This option is only allowed with SOCK_RAW sockets attached to ethernet type devices. v2 updates ---------- Michael's Comments - Perform length check in packet_snd() when GSO is off even when vnet_hdr is present. - Check for SKB_GSO_FCOE type and return -EINVAL - don't allow tx/rx ring when vnet_hdr is enabled. Herbert's Comments - Removed ethernet specific code. - protocol value is assumed to be passed in by the caller. Signed-off-by: Sridhar Samudrala <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
