Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2 7/8] net/memif: relax the load of ring head pointer for S2M zc ring
Date: Mon, 28 Sep 2020 14:03:33 -0500
Message-ID: <20200928190334.40624-7-honnappa.nagarahalli@arm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200928190334.40624-1-honnappa.nagarahalli@arm.com>

For zero-copy S2M rings, ring->head is updated by the sender and
eth_memif_tx_zc function is called in the context of sending thread.
The loads in the sender do not need to synchronize with its own stores.
