Whaou, there were a lot of reviewers!
The patch should be really clean. Let's see :)

> --- a/lib/librte_ether/rte_ethdev.c
> +++ b/lib/librte_ether/rte_ethdev.c
>  		/* add address to the hardware */

>  			(*dev->dev_ops->mac_addr_add)(dev, &addr, i, pool);

> +	/* Update pool bitmap in NIC data structure */
> +	dev->data->mac_pool_sel[index] = 0;

Reset is a better word than "Update" in this case.
But do we really need a comment for that?

> +#define ETH_MQ_RX_RSS_FLAG  0x1
> +#define ETH_MQ_RX_DCB_FLAG  0x2
> +#define ETH_MQ_RX_VMDQ_FLAG 0x4

Need a comment to know where these flags can be used.

Why not simply remove all these combinations and keep only flags?
Please keep it simple.

> +	/**< Specify the queue range belongs to VMDQ pools if VMDQ applicable */
> +	uint16_t vmdq_queue_base;
> +	uint16_t vmdq_queue_num;

If comment is before, it should be /** not /**<.

> +	uint16_t vmdq_pool_base; /** < Specify the start pool ID of VMDQ pools */

There is a typo with the space --^
Please, when writing comments, ask yourself if each word is required
and how it can be shorter.
Example here: /**< first ID of VMDQ pools */

Conclusion: NACK
There are only few typos and minor things but it would help to have more
careful reviews. Having a list of people at the beginning of the patch
didn't help in this case.

Thanks for your attention
