Subject: Re: [dpdk-ci] [PATCH v6 1/2] mbuf: add bulk free function
Date: Thu, 10 Oct 2019 16:13:50 +0200
Message-ID: <98CBD80474FA8B44BF855DF32C47DC35C60B72@smartserver.smartshare.dk> (raw)

Hi CI Team,

Although my patch only adds a single function, which is not being called from anywhere, the patch failed the iol-intel-Performance test:
http://mails.dpdk.org/archives/test-report/2019-October/101829.html

So I think something went wrong with the test environment.

Is there any way to trigger a re-run of the test?


Med venlig hilsen / kind regards
- Morten Brørup

> * Squash multiple modifications into one.
> v3:

> * Add inline helper function, mainly for readability.
> * Fix source code formatting regarding indentation.
> v2:
> * Function is not inline.
> * Optimize to free multible mbufs belonging to the same mempool in
>   bulk. Inspired by ixgbe_tx_free_bufs(), but allowing NULL pointers
>   in the array, just like rte_pktmbuf_free() can take a NULL pointer.
> * Use unsigned int instead of unsigned. Passes checkpatch, but

> * Fix a typo in the description headline: mempools is plural.
