Additional explanation:
Was announced in the dpdk-dev mailing list:
http://mails.dpdk.org/archives/dev/2020-June/169542.html

> +- Bit operations APIs for PMDs
> +- rte_atomic API deprecation with-in DPDK

Deprecation is not a feature to coordinate in the roadmap I think.

> +- Use C11 atomic semantics in mbuf, eventdev, eal interrupts
> +- CPU frequency calculation using generic counter for Arm platforms
> +- LPM library integration with RCU library

I would word it in reverse order: isn't it the RCU lib which is integrated in LPM?

> +- Change IO barriers to align with other-multi-copy atomicity memory model for Armv8-a

I don't understand "other-multi-copy atomicity".

Thanks Thomas for your comments.

Ok, no problem. I just wanted to make sure that the community is on-board in reviewing the patch and making decisions. I guess the proposal on the mailing list is enough for that?

I guess it is more about which library was created first. I will reverse the order.

There were few references provided in the patch. They are at [1], [2] and [3]. But, I guess it is not clear what this work item means exactly. I can change it as follows:

"Change IO barriers to use 'DMB' instruction for Armv8-a"

The patch itself is trivial. But, it is a basic change affecting all the drivers for Arm platforms. So, I would like to call out everyone's attention.

Thanks for the replies.
Feel free to send a v2 that I can merge.
