Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] build: enable packet data prefetch
Date: Tue, 22 Sep 2020 16:21:35 +0800
Message-ID: <20200922082135.62240-1-yong.liu@intel.com> (raw)

Data prefetch instruction can preload data into cpu’s hierarchical
cache before data access. Virtualized data paths like virtio utilized
this feature for acceleration. Since most modern cpus have support
prefetch function, we can enable packet data prefetch as default.
