The related kernel function is:
- pci_num_vf, it is introduced from upstream linux-2.6.34. For RHEL6's kernel,
it is defined from RHEL6.0.

- kstrtoul, this function is united kernel API to replace strict_strtoul in
the furture. It is introduced from linux-2.6.39. For RHEL6, it is defined
from RHEL6.4.

This patchset do some compatiblity work for these two functions, and
replace strict_strtoul which is depleted from linux-3.18.

v2:
Merge these two patch in one patchset.
Compatible with old kernel for kstrtoul.
Compatible with RHEL6 for pci_num_vf.

Function pci_num_vf() is introduced from upstream linux-2.6.34. So
this patch make compatible with longterm kernel linux-2.6.32.63.

For RHEL6's kernel, although it is based on linux-2.6.32, it has
pci_num_vf() implementation. As the same with commit 11ba0426,
pci_num_vf() is defined from RHEL6. So we should check the macro
RHEL_RELEASE_CODE to consider this situation.

For compatible with old kernel and RHEL6, add some logic to
igb_uio/compat.h, same as what we do for pci_num_vf().

Please, could you explain in which case CONFIG_PCI_IOV is defined?
The logic is a bit difficult to understand.

Yep, there is a little confusion for pci_num_vf():
1. it is available when CONFIG_PCI_IOV is defined.
2. it is introduced from upstream kernel v2.6.34 (fb8a0d9)
3. it is implemented from RHEL6.0, although the kernel version is 2.6.32.

The logic of this patch is:
#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(2, 6, 34) && \
(!(defined(RHEL_RELEASE_CODE) && RHEL_RELEASE_CODE >= 
RHEL_RELEASE_VERSION(6, 0) && defined(CONFIG_PCI_IOV)))

Firstly it detects kernel version, if it is less than 2.6.34, and it is 
not RHEL-specified, then define pci_num_vf().

Secondly, it deals with RHEL-specified. If it is RHEL6.0 or later, and 
CONFIG_PCI_IOV is defined. we should not define pci_num_vf(). If any of 
these conditions is not reached, pci_num_vf() should be defined.


Some days ago, I setup dpdk for longterm kernel 2.6.32.63, and got error:
```

That is because longterm kernel 2.6.32.63 defined CONFIG_PCI_IOV, but it 
lacks pci_num_vf(),
after above processing, pci_num_vf() is still not existed, then build fail.

My patch could work around it, and can deal with RHEL-specified kernel.

Sorry, you didn't described when CONFIG_PCI_IOV is defined.
Is it defined since 2.6.34 upstream? In lower stable versions?
Is it defined since RHEL 6.0?
Why checking CONFIG_PCI_IOV is not sufficient?

When pci_num_vf will be backported in other distributions, we will have to
tune this check and clearly understand what was the situation.

I can read the check but I don't know why CONFIG_PCI_IOV is checked in the
RHEL case.

Thanks, we just need to understand the matrix of combinations to be sure
it will be well maintained.

You are replacing strict_strtoul in kni and xen_dom0 without providing
a compatibility fallback.

I am not the expert on this, the only thing I know is:
CONFIG_PCI_IOV is config switch for the I/O device virtualization, it will
enable some SRIOV feature for PCI devices supports IO virtualization.
It is defined since upstream kernel v2.6.30 (d1b054d).

But as you said, function pci_num_vf() is stub-defined in kernel when
CONFIG_PCI_IOV disabled. So checking CONFIG_PCI_IOV is meaningless
for pci_num_vf().

For the function pci_num_vf(), I wrote it is defined since RHEL6.0.
But after some searching, I found the earliest is RHEL5 Update9
kernel-devel-2.6.18-348.el5.x86_64.rpm.

I think it should be modified to:
```
  #if LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(2, 6, 34) && \
-    !defined(CONFIG_PCI_IOV)
+       (!(defined(RHEL_RELEASE_CODE) && \
+          RHEL_RELEASE_CODE >= RHEL_RELEASE_VERSION(5, 9)))
```

After that, if there is other distro need to be compatible,
we could simply add condition bellow:
(!(defined(OTHER_RELEASE_CODE) && OTHER_RELEASE_CODE >= 
OTHER_RELEASE_VERSION(X, Y)))


Thanks for your patient for pointing out the issue of my patch.
