Hi Jason:

I am trying to test MTU changes to the BPF fib_lookup helper and seeing
something odd. Hoping you can help.

I have a VM with multiple virtio based NICs and tap backends. I install
the xdp program on eth1 and eth2 to do forwarding. In the host I send a
large packet to eth1:

$ ping -s 1500

The tap device in the host sees 2 packets:

$ sudo tcpdump -nv -i vm02-eth1
20:44:33.943160 IP (tos 0x0, ttl 64, id 58746, offset 0, flags [+],
proto ICMP (1), length 1500) > ICMP echo request, id 17917, seq 1,
length 1480
20:44:33.943172 IP (tos 0x0, ttl 64, id 58746, offset 1480, flags
[none], proto ICMP (1), length 48) > ip-proto-1

In the VM, the XDP program only sees the first packet, not the fragment.
I added a printk to the program (see diff below):

$ cat trace_pipe
            <idle>-0     [003] ..s2   254.436467: 0: packet length 1514

Anything come to mind in the virtio xdp implementation that affects
fragment packets? I see this with both IPv4 and v6.
Not yet. But we do turn of tap gso when virtio has XDP set, but it
shouldn't matter this case.

Will try to see what's wrong.

I added this to the command line for the NICs and it works:


XDP program sees the full size packet and the fragment.

Fun fact: only adding mrg_rxbuf=off so that mergeable_rx_bufs is false
but big_packets is true generates a panic when it receives large packets.

It looks like we wrongly drop packets after linearizing the packets during XDP_REDIRECT.

Please try the patch (but I do spot some other issues, will post a series):
