Hi,

I find it a bit confusing that in qat_sym_pmd.c, session_pool was not 
set when sym qp was setup, as shown below.

static int qat_sym_qp_setup(struct rte_cryptodev *dev, uint16_t qp_id,
     const struct rte_cryptodev_qp_conf *qp_conf,
     int socket_id, struct rte_mempool *session_pool __rte_unused)

However, later on when qat sym builds request it explicitly looks for 
session info in qat_sym_build_request(), which ends up with failure.

Did I miss something during device and qp setup? How does qat sym setup 
session info for qp?

Thanks,
Meng

[Fiona] the session_pool passed to qp_setup is only for use in sessionless ops.
See API comments in rte_cryptodev.h.
QAT does not support sessionless, so doesn't use this param.

For session based ops, which use RTE_CRYPTO_OP_WITH_SESSION, the session
Is independent of the qp. How it's used is not QAT-specific.
The procedure is to call rte_cryptodev_sym_session_create(pool),
then rte_cryptodev_sym_session_init(dev_id)
Further details are described here:
