Certain hardware may be able to strip and/or save only the outermost
VLAN instead of both the VLANs in the mbuf in a QinQ scenario.
To handle such cases, we could re-interpret setting of just
PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED to indicate that only the outermost VLAN has
been stripped and saved in mbuf->vlan_tci_outer.
Only When both PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED and PKT_RX_VLAN_STRIPPED are set, the 2
VLANs have been stripped by the hardware and their TCI are saved in
mbuf->vlan_tci (inner) and mbuf->vlan_tci_outer (outer).

Seeing as its been a month since it was submitted and no comments on
it yet , are we ok to go ahead and merge this in please?

Thanks

Hi Somnath,

Sorry for the delay, please find some comments below.

I suggest the following title instead:

  mbuf: extend meaning of QinQ stripped bit

To be sure we're on the same page: we are talking about case 7 of this
link: http://inbox.dpdk.org/dev/20191227145041.GQ22738@platinum/

So, even if the inner vlan_tci is not stripped from packet data, it has
to be saved in m->vlan_tci, because it is implied by PKT_RX_VLAN.

From the same link, the case where the driver only strips+saves the
outer vlan without saving or stripping the inner one is case 3.

ok

This is correct, but I'd use a bullet list to add another sentence:

 * - If both PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED and PKT_RX_VLAN_STRIPPED are set, the 2 vlans
 *   have been stripped by the hardware and their tci are saved in
 *   mbuf->vlan_tci (inner) and mbuf->vlan_tci_outer (outer).
 * - If PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED is set and PKT_RX_VLAN_STRIPPED is unset, only the
 *   outer vlan is removed from packet data, but both tci are saved in
 *   mbuf->vlan_tci (inner) and mbuf->vlan_tci_outer (outer).

The same exact sentence is above, this one can be removed.

> + * When PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED and PKT_RX_VLAN_STRIPPED are set,
> + * (PKT_RX_VLAN | PKT_RX_QINQ) must also be set.

This can be removed too as it is redundant with above sentence:

 * When PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED is set, the flags (PKT_RX_VLAN |  PKT_RX_QINQ)
 * must also be set.

Olivier

I'm not sure we are on the same page then, please see my response inline below

While this is how it works currently, I'm wondering how will the
application know if this was
a double VLAN pkt, correct?
Also when i look at options 5 and 7 I don't really see the difference
in semantics between them ?
Both seem to store the outer-vlan and inner-vlan in m->vlan_tci_outer
and m->vlan_tci_inner respectively

7/ PKT_RX_VLAN | PKT_RX_QINQ | PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED
   outer-vlan is removed from packet data
   m->vlan_tci_outer=outer-vlan
   m->vlan_tci=inner-vlan

I was hoping that with the new interpretation of PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED,
it only meant that outer-vlan is removed from packet data
and m->vlan_tci_outer = outer_vlan, while PKT_RX_QINQ implies it is a
double-vlan pkt and PKT_RX_VLAN implies that pkt has VLAN
associated with it?   Not m->vlan_tci = inner-vlan

Thanks

If the hardware supports it and configured for it, the flag PKT_RX_QINQ
is set when there are 2 vlans.

FYI, the m->packet_type field can also be useful. It describes what is
really present in the packet data, as described in rte_mbuf_core.h:

	/*
	 * The packet type, which is the combination of outer/inner L2, L3, L4
	 * and tunnel types. The packet_type is about data really present in the
	 * mbuf. Example: if vlan stripping is enabled, a received vlan packet
	 * would have RTE_PTYPE_L2_ETHER and not RTE_PTYPE_L2_VLAN because the
	 * vlan is stripped from the data.
	 */

The difference is about what was stripped or not from mbuf data.

The meaning of each flag should be as simple as possible, I think we can
summarize them like this:

- PKT_RX_VLAN: the vlan is saved in vlan tci.
- PKT_RX_VLAN_STRIPPED: the vlan hdr is removed from packet data.
- PKT_RX_QINQ: the outer vlan is saved in vlan tci.
- PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED: the inner vlan is stripped from packet data.
- When PKT_RX_QINQ is set, PKT_RX_VLAN* refer to the inner vlan
  of initial packet, else it refers to the first vlan of the packet.

There is a link between vlan flag and vlan_tci field, and qinq flag and
vlan_tci_outer field.

I'm still not sure to understand what you expect. Can you give an
example with flags (which are set), and the expected content of m->vlan_tci
and m->vlan_tci_outer?

By the way, the case 5/ is not very well described too, maybe we should
add something about it.

Thanks,
Olivier

The patch does help clarify the meaning, and Oliver's summary clarifies
even more. It might be possible for hardware to offload inner vlan but
not outer vlan, though seriously doubt anyone but some conformance test
would do that.

Please Somnath, it is waiting for a v2.

I'll review v2 promptly, some minor comments from me below
(taking into account that Olivier's review notes are applied).

I realize that some of my comment above touch not modified
lines, but ~90% of the description is updated and I see no
point to keep remaining 10% untouched.

Somnath, why neither update, nor reply to reviews after February 7?
It is discouraging for reviewers.

Anybody volunteer to make a v2 please?

Clarify the documentation of QinQ flags, and extend the meaning of the
flag: if PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED is set and PKT_RX_VLAN_STRIPPED is unset,
only the outer VLAN is removed from packet data, but both tci are saved
in mbuf->vlan_tci (inner) and mbuf->vlan_tci_outer (outer).

Hi,

Here is an update of this old patch from Somnath.

Olivier


v2:
- better reword PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED documentation
- also update PKT_RX_QINQ documentation

Is it only a documentation fix and the drivers are already
implementing this behavior?
CC driver maintainers for double check.
