> Subject: [Intel-wired-lan] [PATCH v3] i40e: Add macvlan support on i40e
> This patch enables macvlan offloads for i40e. The idea is to use channels as
> macvlan interfaces. The channels are VSIs of type VMDQ. When the first
> macvlan is created, the maximum number of channels possible are created.
> From then on, as a macvlan interface is created, a mac filter is added to these
> already created channels (VSIs).
> This patch builds on top of the recent changes which move away from the
> select_queue implementation of picking the tx queue.
> Steps to configure macvlan offloads:
> 1. sudo ethtool -K ens261f1 l2-fwd-offload on 2. ip link add link ens261f1
> name macvlan1 type macvlan 3. sudo ip link add link ens261f1 name macvlan1
> type macvlan 4. sudo ip link set macvlan1 up

>     Fixed an indentation issue and added some comments
