Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH 0/3] refresh NIC features matrix
Date: Thu, 12 Mar 2020 00:01:33 +0100
Message-ID: <20200311230136.63452-1-thomas@monjalon.net> (raw)

This series aims to clean-up the big table of ethdev features:
  http://doc.dpdk.org/guides/nics/overview.html#id1

We could reorganize the information in this table,
maybe split it or add/remove some rows.
Before going to such reorganization, we should clean it up.

The first patch is fixing the look & size of the table with recent sphinx.

The second and third patches are removing 8 columns which are
clearly unneeded:
  - bnx2x_vf
  - bonding
  - kni
  - nfp_vf
  - null
  - ring
  - softnic
  - vdev_netvsc

More columns can be removed by merging PF/VF and vector datapaths.
If a feature cannot be supported in all cases, it should be marked
as partially supported (P).
If a feature is PF-specific (like flow control), that's OK to mark
it fully supported because it's obviously impossible for VF.
There are also some features which were probably marked in some
columns and missed in its VF or vector counterpart.
Please work to merge and drop these 16 columns:
  - cxgbevf
  - fm10k_vf
  - hns3_vf
  - i40e_vec
  - i40e_vf
  - i40e_vf_vec
  - iavf_vec
  - ice_vec
  - igb_vf
  - ixgbe_vec
  - ixgbe_vf
  - ixgbe_vf_vec
  - octeontx2_vec
  - octeontx2_vf
  - qede_vf
  - virtio_vec

The total gain is to reduce the table size from 71 to 47 columns.

Please send patches for Chelsio, Huawei, Intel, Marvell and virtio.
