Hi,

After updating dpdk version from 19.11 to 20.11
dpdk-pdump prints such error:
EAL: Error: Invalid memory
Port 7 MAC: 02 70 63 61 70 03
core (2), capture for (1) tuples
- port 0 device ((null)) queue 65535
^C

--legacy-mem is used for both primary primary and dpdk-pdump.
With some debug, I find that  mlx5_mem_is_rte incorrectly consider this address from os memory ((addr=0x4482b80)) as rte address, so mlx5_free
calls rte_free() to free it and caused error.
And this seems to because len of some unused memsegs is not set to 0 (so rte_mem_virt2memseg_list(0x4482b80) returns a memseg).
Here is memsegs:
(gdb) p mcfg->memsegs
$3 = {{{base_va = 0x2aac0000000, addr_64 = 2932388921344}, page_sz = 1073741824, socket_id = 0,
    version = 0, len = 34359738368, external = 0, heap = 1, memseg_arr = {
      name = "memseg-1048576k-0-0", '\000' <repeats 44 times>, count = 5, len = 32,
      elt_sz = 48, data = 0x2aaa302e000, rwlock = {cnt = 0}}}, {{base_va = 0x0, addr_64 = 0},
    page_sz = 1073741824, socket_id = 0, version = 0, len = 34359738368, external = 0,
    heap = 0, memseg_arr = {name = '\000' <repeats 63 times>, count = 0, len = 0, elt_sz = 0,
      data = 0x0, rwlock = {cnt = 0}}}, {{base_va = 0x0, addr_64 = 0}, page_sz = 1073741824,
    socket_id = 1, version = 0, len = 34359738368, external = 0, heap = 0, memseg_arr = {
      name = '\000' <repeats 63 times>, count = 0, len = 0, elt_sz = 0, data = 0x0, rwlock = {
        cnt = 0}}}, {{base_va = 0x0, addr_64 = 0}, page_sz = 1073741824, socket_id = 1,
    version = 0, len = 34359738368, external = 0, heap = 0, memseg_arr = {
      name = '\000' <repeats 63 times>, count = 0, len = 0, elt_sz = 0, data = 0x0, rwlock = {
        cnt = 0}}}, {{base_va = 0x0, addr_64 = 0}, page_sz = 0, socket_id = 0, version = 0,
    len = 0, external = 0, heap = 0, memseg_arr = {name = '\000' <repeats 63 times>, count = 0,
      len = 0, elt_sz = 0, data = 0x0, rwlock = {cnt = 0}}} <repeats 124 times>}

It seems to me that below code piece from eal_legacy_hugepage_init should also set len to 0?

Hi,

I modified eal_legacy_hugepage_init and problem is solved.
Should the correction be added to dpdk upstream?

Hi,
