Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2] ethdev: limit maximum number of queues
Date: Wed, 27 Nov 2019 15:31:21 +0100
Message-ID: <20191127143121.10590-1-thomas@monjalon.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20191127134213.9003-1-thomas@monjalon.net>

A buffer overflow happens in testpmd with some drivers
since the queue arrays are limited to RTE_MAX_QUEUES_PER_PORT.

The advertised capabilities of mlx4, mlx5 and softnic
for the number of queues were the maximum number: UINT16_MAX.
They must be limited by the configured RTE_MAX_QUEUES_PER_PORT
that applications expect to be respected.

The limitation is applied at ethdev level (function rte_eth_dev_info_get),
in order to force the configured limit for all drivers.

Fixes: 14b53e27b30e ("ethdev: fix crash with multiprocess")
