Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] doc/devbind: remove references to igb_uio
Date: Sat,  5 Sep 2020 20:38:46 -0700
Message-ID: <20200906033846.24686-1-stephen@networkplumber.org> (raw)

We should be encouraging the use of vfio_pci for developers, not telling
them to use igb_uio.

Also fix typo where .py suffix is visible in document.
