Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH 1/3] ethdev: update modify field flow action
Date: Fri, 1 Oct 2021 22:52:21 +0300
Message-ID: <20211001195223.31909-2-viacheslavo@nvidia.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20211001195223.31909-1-viacheslavo@nvidia.com>

The generic modify field flow action introduced in [1] has
some issues related to the immediate source operand:

  - immediate source can be presented either as an unsigned
    64-bit integer or pointer to data pattern in memory.
    There was no explicit pointer field defined in the union

  - the byte ordering for 64-bit integer was not specified.
    Many fields have lesser lengths and byte ordering
    is crucial.

  - how the bit offset is applied to the immediate source
    field was not defined and documented

  - 64-bit integer size is not enough to provide MAC and
    IPv6 addresses

In order to cover the issues and exclude any ambiguities
the following is done:

  - introduce the explicit pointer field
    in rte_flow_action_modify_data structure

  - replace the 64-bit unsigned integer with 16-byte array

  - update the modify field flow action documentation

[1] commit 73b68f4c54a0 ("ethdev: introduce generic modify flow action")

 ``value`` sets an immediate value to be used as a source or points to a
 location of the value in memory. It is used instead of ``level`` and ``offset``
 for ``RTE_FLOW_FIELD_VALUE`` and ``RTE_FLOW_FIELD_POINTER`` respectively.
+The data in memory should be presented exactly in the same byte order and
+length as in the relevant flow item, i.e. data for field with type
+RTE_FLOW_FIELD_MAC_DST should follow the conventions of dst field
+in rte_flow_item_eth structure, with type RTE_FLOW_FIELD_IPV6_SRC -
+rte_flow_item_ipv6 conventions, and so on. The bitfield exatracted from the
+memory being applied as second operation parameter is defined by width and
+the destination field offset. If the field size is large than 16 bytes the
+pattern can be provided as pointer only.
