eBPF and XDP walkthrough and recent updates

This talk presents an overview of the Linux kernel's eBPF subsystem and how it integrates into tc (traffic control) and XDP (eXpress Data Path) for providing a high-performance, in-kernel programmable networking data plane. Since the last fosdem, many new eBPF-related features found its way into the Linux kernel. This talk highlights some of the most important advances along with some examples on how this facility can be programmed.
