Hi Somnath,

Sorry for the delay, please find some comments below.

I suggest the following title instead:

  mbuf: extend meaning of QinQ stripped bit

To be sure we're on the same page: we are talking about case 7 of this
link: http://inbox.dpdk.org/dev/20191227145041.GQ22738@platinum/

So, even if the inner vlan_tci is not stripped from packet data, it has
to be saved in m->vlan_tci, because it is implied by PKT_RX_VLAN.

From the same link, the case where the driver only strips+saves the
outer vlan without saving or stripping the inner one is case 3.

their tci are -> its tci is

ok

This is correct, but I'd use a bullet list to add another sentence:

 * - If both PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED and PKT_RX_VLAN_STRIPPED are set, the 2 vlans
 *   have been stripped by the hardware and their tci are saved in
 *   mbuf->vlan_tci (inner) and mbuf->vlan_tci_outer (outer).
 * - If PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED is set and PKT_RX_VLAN_STRIPPED is unset, only the
 *   outer vlan is removed from packet data, but both tci are saved in
 *   mbuf->vlan_tci (inner) and mbuf->vlan_tci_outer (outer).

> + * This can only happen if vlan stripping is enabled in the RX configuration

The same exact sentence is above, this one can be removed.

> + * When PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED and PKT_RX_VLAN_STRIPPED are set,
> + * (PKT_RX_VLAN | PKT_RX_QINQ) must also be set.

This can be removed too as it is redundant with above sentence:

 * When PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED is set, the flags (PKT_RX_VLAN |  PKT_RX_QINQ)
 * must also be set.


Thanks,
Olivier
