pktgen: add benchmark script pktgen_bench_xmit_mode_netif_receive.sh
This script pktgen_bench_xmit_mode_netif_receive.sh is a benchmark script, which can be used for benchmarking part of the network stack. This can be used for performance improving or catching regression in that area. The script is developed for benchmarking ingress qdisc path, original idea by Alexei Starovoitov. This script don't really need any hardware. This is achieved via the recently introduced stack inject feature "xmit_mode netif_receive". See commit 62f64aed622b6 ("pktgen: introduce xmit_mode '<start_xmit|netif_receive>'"). Signed-off-by: Jesper Dangaard Brouer <brouer@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

+# Benchmark script:
+# - developed for benchmarking ingress qdisc path
+#
+# Script for injecting packets into RX path of the stack with pktgen
+# "xmit_mode netif_receive". With an invalid dst_mac this will only
+# measure the ingress code path as packets gets dropped in ip_rcv().
+#
+# This script don't really need any hardware. It benchmarks software
+# RX path just after NIC driver level. With bursting is also
+# "removes" the SKB alloc/free overhead.
+#
+# Setup scenarios for measuring ingress qdisc (with invalid dst_mac):
+# ------------------------------------------------------------------
+# (1) no ingress (uses static_key_false(&ingress_needed))
+#
+# (2) ingress on other dev (change ingress_needed and calls
+# handle_ing() but exit early)
+#
+# config: tc qdisc add dev $SOMEDEV handle ffff: ingress
+#
+# (3) ingress on this dev, handle_ing() -> tc_classify()
+#
+# config: tc qdisc add dev $DEV handle ffff: ingress
+#
+# (4) ingress on this dev + drop at u32 classifier/action.
