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
EAL: Detected CPU lcores: 72

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:

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:

As you can see, setting RSS hash fields is not supported by the
hardware. The driver provides this API call, but it cannot be
processed by the hardware as it lacks this feature.

If this API is not supported, the driver returns the defaults for
which the RSS HF is enabled in the FW:

#define ENA_ALL_RSS_HF (RTE_ETH_RSS_NONFRAG_IPV4_TCP |
RTE_ETH_RSS_NONFRAG_IPV4_UDP | \
RTE_ETH_RSS_NONFRAG_IPV6_TCP | RTE_ETH_RSS_NONFRAG_IPV6_UDP)

This is the 0xc30 value which you can see as 'valid value' in the
'hello_server' application.

Configuration of the RSS hash key should work although the RSS HF
cannot be changed. And RSS will be enabled for both the TCP and the
UDP by default - however it cannot be turned off.

Thanks,
Michal
