Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH 2/3] stack: add lock-free support indication
Date: Mon, 12 Apr 2021 10:29:00 +0200
Message-ID: <20210412082901.652736-3-kda@semihalf.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210412082901.652736-1-kda@semihalf.com>

Currently it is impossible to detect programatically whether lock-free
implementation of rte_stack is supported. One could check whether the
header guard for lock-free stubs is defined (_RTE_STACK_LF_STUBS_H_) but
that's an unstable implementation detail. Because of that currently all
lock-free ring creations silently succeed (as long as the stack header
is 16B long) which later leads to push and pop operations being NOPs.
The observable effect is that stack_lf_autotest fails on platforms not
supporting the lock-free. Instead it should just skip the lock-free test
altogether.

This commit adds a new errno value (ENOTSUP) that may be returned by
rte_stack_create() to indicate that a given combination of flags is not
supported on a current platform.
This is detected by checking a compile-time flag in the include logic in
rte_stack_lf.h which may be used by applications to check the lock-free
support at compile time.
