To me, a static inline function does not need to be added in
rte_ring_version.map (or is it due to a check script checking the
__rte_experimental tag ?). I found at least one commit where it
is not the case:
c277b34c1b3b ("mbuf: add function returning buffer address")

There are 2 options:
1- remove the rte_ring_version.map part of the patch.
2- change the static inline function into a standard function.

I would prefer 2-, because it allows to keep an api/abi compat
layer in the future.

Regards
Olivier
