and:CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: email@example.com 2022/04/30 15:13:57 Modified files: sys/net : if.c ifq.c Log message: Run IP input and forwarding with shared netlock. Also distribute packets from the interface receive rings into multiple net task queues. Note that we still have only one softnet task. So there will be no concurrency yet, but we can notice wrong exclusive lock assertions. Soon the final step will be to increase the NET_TASKQ define. lots of testing Hrvoje Popovski; OK sashan@
