Subject: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH v2] eal/freebsd: lock memory device to prevent conflicts
Date: Mon, 13 Sep 2021 15:08:48 +0100
Message-ID: <20210913140848.184928-1-bruce.richardson@intel.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210913110635.130387-1-bruce.richardson@intel.com>

Only a single DPDK process on the system can be using the /dev/contigmem
mappings at a time, but this was never explicitly enforced, e.g. when
using --in-memory flag on two processes. To prevent possible conflict
issues, we lock the dev node when it's in use, preventing other DPDK
processes from starting up and causing problems for us.

Fixes: 764bf26873b9 ("add FreeBSD support")
Cc: stable@dpdk.org

V2: Adding missing LOCK_NB flag to make sure the process doesn't sit
    waiting for the lock to be released
