Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] ixgbe: fix multi-process support
Date: Thu,  4 Dec 2014 11:47:30 +0000
Message-ID: <1417693650-9813-1-git-send-email-bruce.richardson@intel.com> (raw)

When using multiple processes, the TX function used in all processes
should be the same, otherwise the secondary processes cannot transmit
more than tx-ring-size - 1 packets.
To achieve this, we extract out the code to select the ixgbe TX function
to be used into a separate function inside the ixgbe driver, and call
that from a secondary process when it is attaching to an
already-configured NIC.

Testing with symmetric MP app shows that we are able to RX and TX from
both primary and secondary processes once this patch is applied.
