Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] test/service: fix wait for service core
Date: Wed, 27 Nov 2019 13:20:27 +0000
Message-ID: <20191127132027.80239-1-harry.van.haaren@intel.com> (raw)

This commit fixes a sporadic failure of the service_autotest
unit test, as seen in the DPDK CI. The failure occurs as the main test
thread did not wait on the service-thread to return, and allowing it
to read a flag before the service was able to write to it.

The fix changes the wait API call to specific the service-core ID,
and this waits for cores with both ROLE_RTE and ROLE_SERVICE.

The rte_eal_mp_wait_lcore() call does not (and should not) wait
for service cores, so must not be used to wait on service-cores.

Fixes: f038a81e1c56 ("service: add unit tests")

Given this is a fix in the unit test, and not a functional change
I'm not sure its worth backporting to LTS / stable releases?
I've not added stable on CC yet.
