meson guarantees this is portable, so this also allows us to remove a
is_windows switch.

libpcap is already found and registered as a dependency by meson, and
the dependency is already correctly used in librte_port. This line is
just unnecessary.

It also has the side effect of messing with the meson link line: dpdk
link will be declared twice: manually and then through pkg-config. If
you configure meson to prefer static linking over dynamic, this will
cause the build to fail on librte_port, since the pcap deps are not yet
seen by the linker.

No objection to this on my part. Rather than bumping to just 0.48, I think
we might as well jump a couple of versions. For example, 0.49 adds support
for "break" and "continue" keywords which could allow loop simplification.
Beyond that, it's a matter of how up-to-date we want to be...

There are references in the docs and the CI is blocked at 0.47.1 explicitly:

.ci/linux-setup.sh:sudo python3 -m pip install --upgrade 'meson==0.47.1'
doc/guides/linux_gsg/sys_reqs.rst:*   Meson (version 0.47.1+) and ninja
doc/guides/prog_guide/build-sdk-meson.rst:3 ``pip`` tool, e.g. ``pip3
install meson``. Version 0.47.1 of meson is
doc/guides/windows_gsg/build_dpdk.rst:Recommended version is either
Meson 0.47.1 (baseline) or the latest release.

FYI, recalling some TODOs and which versions would allow to resolve them.

From https://mails.dpdk.org/archives/dev/2021-January/196000.html:

	A script to extract object files from library is still required.
	Meson has extract_all_objects(), but they can't be passed as inputs
	to custom_target() until 0.52.0 (commit f431cff809).

buildtools/meson.build:

	# TODO: starting from Meson 0.51.0 use
	# 	python3 = import('python').find_installation('python',
	#		modules : python3_required_modules)

config/meson.build:

	# TODO: use cc.get_linker_id() with Meson >= 0.54
	is_ms_linker = is_windows and (cc.get_id() == 'clang')

Hi,

Thanks for the review.

I have some reservations about those TODO: they are about
rewriting the same functionality with a newer meson feature.
No functional change is expected. => Why not write a commit that
implements such a TODO and bumps meson version at the same time
independently ?

In any case, I aimed to set meson's required version to the lowest possible
value
so that distributions would have a chance to provide it. I know we can just
install meson using pip, but it might be nice not to need this.
Below are some versions of meson packages as of today:
  pip: 0.57.1
  rhel-8: 0.49.2
  debian-10: 0.49.2
  ubuntu-18.04: 0.45.1
  ubuntu-20.04: 0.53.2

Going over 0.49.2 will cause DPDK to lose some major distribution's stable
release,
at least out-of-the-box through their respective package manager.

I propose to bump to 0.49.2 here, and leave the TODOs to wait a little
longer.
What do you think ?

Best regards,

P.S. get_linker_id() seems to be introduced in 0.53
See:
https://mesonbuild.com/Release-notes-for-0-53-0.html#compilerget_linker_id

Yes, sounds practical.
I rather meant to recollect known TODOs then to propose solving all at once.

+1
However, I don't think we need the ".2" specifically, since new features
don't come in point releases, so I'd suggest just making "0.49" the
minimum.

To partially contradict myself here, there is a bug[1] present in earlier
releases of meson which can affect building OVS and apps using pkg-config
for DPDK. This has been fixed[2] in 0.50 release onwards, but also backported
to meson 0.49.1. Therefore, for sanity, we may indeed want to bump the
version to 0.49.1 (or .2 if you like) rather than 0.49 as I suggested here.
