Hi Steve,

Thanks for asking. This actually isn't a duplicate of 1730444. These are patches that Microsoft have requested in addition to the rebase to 4.13. Some of these patches have either landed in 4.14 or have been submitted upstream but not yet accepted. We're still getting clarification from Microsoft on current status for the ones which have not yet been accepted. Thanks.

Hi, Josh.

Both the following patch:

4.13/hv_netvsc-Add-ethtool-handler-to-set-and-get-UDP-has.patch

and its corresponding upstream commit:

4823eb2f3af4 hv_netvsc: Add ethtool handler to set and get UDP hash levels

include UDP ports by default in the vRSS hashing, which causes a considerable amount of loss in the UDP tests I've run with iperf3.

`ethtool -N eth0 rx-flow-hash udp4 sd` works as designed and forces the UDP ports to be excluded from the calculation, dropping the datagram loss to zero.

Is that the intended behavior? Or should we force it to exclude UDP ports by default?
