On AWS EC2 I configure:

- c5n.metal instance
- Stock AWS AMI Ubuntu 20.04 LTS ($ cat /proc/version
Linux version 5.4.0-1045-aws)
- Apply the vfio pci driver from https://github.com/amzn/am
zn-drivers/tree/master/userspace/dpdk/enav2-vfio-patch
- Using DPDK code from head of main branch. I built using ninja/meson
- Add a 2nd ENA enabled NIC
- Setup 2Mb huge pages, and bound the 2nd NIC with dpdk-devbind

I run test-pmd with this command:

$ sudo ./dpdk-testpmd --huge-dir=/mnt/huge -c 0xf -n 4 -- -i

*Key point: I try to enable RSS hash offload for UDP or TCP. I get the
following error shown in bold:*

testpmd> port config all rss udp

*Port 0 modified RSS hash function based on hardware
support,requested:0x20820 configured:0x820*ena_rss_hash_set(): Setting RSS

If I run ethtool on the NIC before putting it down state and DPDK binding
to vfio-pci I see an indication that there is a hash key, and RSS Hash
works:

ubuntu$ ethtool -x ens6

RSS hash function:
    toeplitz: on
    xor: off
    crc32: off

What gives? Do I need to modify a constant somewhere in DPDK?

At the risk of expanding scope, I am really trying to run eRPC which runs
on top of DPDK. It fails in dpdk_init with a similar but slightly different
error shown in bold in which the putative valid value is different than
above:
