I mean, the original wrong code, but using -O3 optimization yielded a correct result. My patch makes the effects of -O3 and -O0 consistent. Unlike other signals that require busy wait, this callback pointer only needs to be read once. So I don't think memory barriers and volatile are needed here. >On Thu, 5 Mar 2020 01:33:49 +0800 >ZY Qiu <email@example.com> wrote: > >> When compiling with -O0, >> the compiler does not optimize two memory accesses into one. >> Leads to accessing a null pointer when queue post Rx burst callback >> removal while traffic is running. >> See rte_eth_tx_burst function. >> >> Signed-off-by: ZY Qiu <firstname.lastname@example.org> > >This is a problem many places in DPDK.
