Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2 1/4] test/stack: avoid trivial memory allocations
Date: Wed, 12 Aug 2020 20:18:44 +0100
Message-ID: <20200812191847.16529-2-steven.lariau@arm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200812191847.16529-1-steven.lariau@arm.com>

Replace the arguments array by one argument.
All objects in the args array have the same values, so there is no need
to use an array, only one struct is enough.
The args object is a lot smaller, and the allocation can be replaced
with a global variable.

The allocation of obj_table isn't needed either, because MAX_BULK is
small. The allocation can instead be replaced with a static array.
