Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH 7/8] doc: change reference to allowlist relative to MAC filtering
Date: Tue, 22 Sep 2020 07:32:01 -0700
Message-ID: <20200922143202.8755-8-stephen@networkplumber.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200922143202.8755-1-stephen@networkplumber.org>

Avoid potential confusion in documentation around allow option
for bus addresses by rewording the text around MAC address filtering.
