Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/3] ethdev: fix telemetry xstats return null with some PMDs
Date: Sun, 24 Apr 2022 11:44:59 +0800
Message-ID: <f0cb3543-bd57-8978-e9c5-fa985540185f@huawei.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <c3ebf4d9-aa2a-1dd5-4377-e06c7d56e7d1@oktetlabs.ru>

The root cause is: when the xstats is NULL and n less than required number of
elements is zero, the return value of rte_eth_xstats_get is ambiguous from
rte_ethdev.h's declaration.

But the implementation of rte_eth_xstats_get return required number of elements
when xstats is NULL and n less than required number of elements.

There are two modification schemes:
a) the value of xstats cannot be NULL, and the value of n must be greater than
   or equal to the required number, otherwise, an error code is returned.
b) define the behavior as the same as rte_eth_xstats_get_names, which means return
   required number of elelement when xstats is NULL and n less than required number
   of elements.

I prefer the scheme a because rte_eth_xstats_get and rte_eth_xstats_get_name are
symbiotic, and it's not necessary to both implement the same logic.

Also for scheme a, there is no need to modify the PMD implementation.

What about your opinions ?
