CONFIG_IRDA_FAST_RR: Fast RRs (low latency)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_IRDA_FAST_RR:

Help text

Say Y here is you want IrLAP to send fast RR (Receive Ready) frames when acting as a primary station. Disabling this option will make latency over IrDA very bad. Enabling this option will make the IrDA stack send more packet than strictly necessary, thus reduce your battery life (but not that much).

Fast RR will make IrLAP send out a RR frame immediately when receiving a frame if its own transmit queue is currently empty. This will give a lot of speed improvement when receiving much data since the secondary station will not have to wait the max. turn around time (usually 500ms) before it is allowed to transmit the next time. If the transmit queue of the secondary is also empty, the primary will start backing-off before sending another RR frame, waiting longer each time until the back-off reaches the max. turn around time. This back-off increase in controlled via /proc/sys/net/irda/fast_poll_increase

If unsure, say Y.
