Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2] common/octeontx2: fix seg fault on running procinfo
Date: Mon, 29 Jun 2020 18:56:05 +0530
Message-ID: <1593437165-18065-1-git-send-email-hkalra@marvell.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <CALBAE1NdonLhQ2DRBBGHp5PsvLMT=34VF3FV8UDfqCELshY+zg@mail.gmail.com>

Segmentation fault has been observed while running procinfo
with reset options i.e. --stats-reset and --xstats-reset.
Reason is procinfo runs as a secondary process and tries to
hold a lock which is part of struct mdev, which was not
allocated as part of shared memory.

Fixes: 5ca59711f771 ("common/octeontx2: add mailbox base support infra")
Cc: stable@dpdk.org
