Subject: [PATCH V3 2/2] ethdev: document default and non-default MAC address
Date: Sat, 14 May 2022 10:00:49 +0800
Message-ID: <20220514020049.57294-3-humin29@huawei.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20220514020049.57294-1-humin29@huawei.com>

From: Huisong Li <lihuisong@huawei.com>

The rte_eth_dev_data::mac_addrs is a MAC address array. The index zero of
this array is as the default address index, and other indexes can't be the
same as the address corresponding to index 0. If we break it, may cause
following problems:
1) waste of MAC address spaces.
2) a fake MAC address in the MAC list, isn't in hardware MAC entries.
3) a MAC address is assigned to diffent pool.
