Hi there!
I would like to find out what is the policy regarding changes to the DPDK's
kmod drivers such as igb_uio.ko within a DPDK's LTS release. Are these
changes backward compatible?
For example, is there a guarantee that an application built
against 19.11.5, where igb_uio.ko received changes,would run with this
driver built from 19.11.1 version?

Does http://doc.dpdk.org/guides/contributing/stable.html section 8.4 apply
to kmod drivers as well?

Thanks.
Alex Kotliarov
