Subject: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH v3 3/3] lib: remind experimental status in library headers
Date: Fri, 26 Jun 2020 10:16:38 +0200
Message-ID: <20200626081638.29890-4-david.marchand@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200626081638.29890-1-david.marchand@redhat.com>

The following libraries are experimental, all of their functions can
be changed or removed:

- librte_bbdev
- librte_bpf
- librte_compressdev
- librte_fib
- librte_flow_classify
- librte_graph
- librte_ipsec
- librte_node
- librte_rcu
- librte_rib
- librte_stack
- librte_telemetry

Their status is properly announced in MAINTAINERS.
Remind this status in their headers in a common fashion (aligned to ABI
docs).
