Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2] table: relax requirements for table entry action data
Date: Fri, 26 Mar 2021 20:22:24 +0000
Message-ID: <20210326202224.15655-1-cristian.dumitrescu@intel.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210326183630.9425-1-cristian.dumitrescu@intel.com>

From: Churchill Khangar <churchill.khangar@intel.com>

Currently, the table entry action data is required to be NULL when the
action data size is zero. We now require that action data is ignored
when the action data size is zero. This is to allow for a table entry
instance to be allocated once with max action data size for the table
and reused repeatedly for actions of different sizes, including zero.
