Subject: [PATCH v2 05/33] net/ena: fix fast mbuf free
Date: Mon, 4 Mar 2024 14:29:14 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

From: Shai Brandes <>

In case the application enables fast mbuf release optimization,
the driver releases 256 TX mbufs in bulk upon reaching the
TX free threshold.
The existing implementation utilizes rte_mempool_put_bulk for bulk
freeing TXs, which exclusively supports direct mbufs.
In case the application transmits indirect bufs, the driver must
also decrement the mbuf reference count and unlink the mbuf segment.
For such case, the driver should employ rte_pktmbuf_free_bulk.

Fixes: c339f53823f3 ("net/ena: support fast mbuf free")
