In-Reply-To: <20190905101754.21933-1-ktraynor@redhat.com>

Hi,

FYI, your patch has been queued to LTS release 18.11.3

Note it hasn't been pushed to http://dpdk.org/browse/dpdk-stable yet.
It will be pushed if I get no objections before 09/12/19. So please
shout if anyone has objections.

Also note that after the patch there's a diff of the upstream commit vs the
patch applied to the branch. This will indicate if there was any rebasing
needed to apply to the stable branch. If there were code changes for rebasing
(ie: not only metadata diffs), please double check that the rebase was
correctly done.

Queued patches are on a temporary branch at:
https://github.com/kevintraynor/dpdk-stable-queue

This queued commit can be viewed at:
https://github.com/kevintraynor/dpdk-stable-queue/commit/97e379db25aaa3064d391cb030601ad407f01dd0

Thanks.

Kevin Traynor

 ---------------------------
 
-- BCM578xx being a CNA can have both NIC and Storage personalities.
-  However, coexistence with storage protocol drivers (cnic, bnx2fc and
-  bnx2fi) is not supported on the same adapter. So storage personality
-  has to be disabled on that adapter when used in DPDK applications.
+- QLogic 578xx CNAs support Ethernet, iSCSI and FCoE functionalities.
+  These functionalities are supported using QLogic Linux kernel
+  drivers bnx2x, cnic, bnx2i and bnx2fc. DPDK is supported on these
+  adapters using bnx2x PMD.
 
-- For SR-IOV case, bnx2x PMD will be used to bind to SR-IOV VF device and
-  Linux native kernel driver (bnx2x) will be attached to SR-IOV PF.
+- When SR-IOV is not enabled on the adapter,
+  QLogic Linux kernel drivers (bnx2x, cnic, bnx2i and bnx2fc) and bnx2x
+  PMD can’t be attached to different PFs on a given QLogic 578xx
+  adapter.
+  A given adapter needs to be completely used by DPDK or Linux drivers.
+  Before binding DPDK driver to one or more PFs on the adapter,
+  please make sure to unbind Linux drivers from all PFs of the adapter.
+  If there are multiple adapters on the system, one or more adapters
+  can be used by DPDK driver completely and other adapters can be used
+  by Linux drivers completely.
 
+- When SR-IOV is enabled on the adapter,
+  Linux kernel drivers (bnx2x, cnic, bnx2i and bnx2fc) can be bound
+  to the PFs of a given adapter and either bnx2x PMD or Linux drivers
+  bnx2x can be bound to the VFs of the adapter.
