RUST is a comparatively new programming language which emphasizes on security. Especially on memory related security like buffer overflow. Linux kernel is adopting drivers compiled with RUST in Linux kernel. Certainly we can see some RUST adoption in Linux kernel and other programming areas.
Linux 5.14 updates
removed the old IDE support.
Support for Rust programming language
mainline support for Raspbery pi 400
The maximum transmission unit (MTU) of a network interface is the size of the largest block of data that can be transmitted as a single unit. Anything larger than the MTU must be broken into smaller units prior to transmission. The following link has a short passage on modifying the MTU.
If you want to change the MTU in the linux kernel source code the macro can be found in
The macro name is ETH_DATA_LEN and if you are increasing it you need to increase the frame length also. The macro for from length is ETH_FRAME_LEN. I did experiment to modify MTU to 1508. So I modified the ETH_DATA_LEN to 1508 and frame length to 1522.
After the same through ifconfig I was able to set the mtu to 1508.
e.g:- ifconfig eth0 mtu 1508
Setting anything beyond ETH_DATA_LEN the ifconfig will return “SIOCSIFMTU: Invalid argument”. Also changing to any values beyond 1500 ensure your network devices support.
