Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH 3/4] examples/vhost: remove dequeue zero-copy support
Date: Tue, 15 Sep 2020 15:35:57 +0200
Message-ID: <20200915133558.210639-4-maxime.coquelin@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200915133558.210639-1-maxime.coquelin@redhat.com>

Vhost library. This preliminary patch removes its uses
in the Vhost example application.
