Subject: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH] examples/l3fwd-power: fix ctrl+c issue
Date: Fri, 29 Oct 2021 14:05:56 +0000
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Currently, EAL init cannot be interrupted with SIGINT because the
signal  handler is already overridden by the time EAL init happens.

Fix it by moving signal handler installation to after EAL
initialization, to allow SIGNIT to interrupt EAL initialization.

Fixes: d7937e2e3d12 ("power: initial import")
