Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH 1/5] mbuf: ensure next pointer is set to null on free
Date: Wed, 17 Sep 2014 11:01:38 +0100
Message-ID: <1410948102-12740-2-git-send-email-bruce.richardson@intel.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1410948102-12740-1-git-send-email-bruce.richardson@intel.com>

The receive functions for packets do not modify the next pointer so
the next pointer should always be cleared on mbuf free, just in case.
The slow-path TX needs to clear it, and the standard mbuf free function
also needs to clear it. Fast path TX does not handle chained mbufs so
is unaffected
