Phoronix: A Brand New Linux Network Stack Proposed: Linux XIA
A brand new networking stack is seeking to be merged into the mainline Linux kernel that's been under development for the past few years. Hello, Linux XIA...
Sounds to me like a conversation started terribly on the wrong foot in the mouth no matter whether XIA will fly or not
The more I read about this the more I want to determine if these new packets can even be routed by current routing technologies?
Or is this proposal a "forklift upgrade" of everything we currently use and understand in Linux networking?
They should propose adding the hooks or other changes needed to the kernel first. Then let it get tested until 4.3 and offer the larger section at that time.
IPv4, what about IPv6?
