DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2008-06
dispatch most functionality of ether_input to protocol threads
Following patch dispatch most ether_input functionality to protocol threads:
It is not built by default, and some parts (vlan/fastforwarding) are
still not finished yet. But the idea behind this patch is quite
ether_input does nothing more than finding the proper protocol threads
for the input packets.
I have done some tests with em. Bridge and normal operation works
with the patch. Hopefully, I could adapt vlan and fastforwarding
before this release. After this release, I plan to switch ether_input
to use ether_input_chain2 in this patch and move on to parallelize
Since the new code is not built by default, I want to commit it soon,
if no one objects.
