Re: Networking stack - Ethernet driver design

Tomasz Bursztyka

Hi Piotr,

Where can I find the list of known current limitations of the
networking stack? Is it documented?
No. We have a TODO which is more like a 1:1 with Jira tickets, but
that's all.

1. Modern Ethernet modules in most of the SoC devices have ability
to generate IP, TCP and UDP checksums in hardware. Is it
possible to tell networking stack not to compute these checksums
in software?
For now, no. There is no generic CRC API that could - depending on
configuration and hardware - either call a software routine or run it
on hardware directly.
Shall I create a Jira issue so this is not forgotten?
Definitely, yes, go ahead.
