Subject: [RFC] eal: increase maximum number of file descriptors in MP message
Date: Tue, 20 Feb 2024 15:09:41 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20240220230941.293399-2-stephen@networkplumber.org> (raw)

The TAP (and XDP) driver need to pass a file descriptor per queue
to/from secondary process. The current limit is too low and ends
up limiting these drivers to 7 queues.

Increase the limit to what the unix domain socket allows.
The Linux kernel allows up to SCM_MAX_FD (253).
