Subject: Re: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2] eal: add option --master-lcore
Date: Thu, 6 Nov 2014 00:43:05 +0100
Message-ID: <545AB609.1060406@neclab.eu> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1415137233-6364-1-git-send-email-thomas.monjalon@6wind.com>


Thanks, that was quick! Quicker than me, actually. ;-)

I started to rebase and modify my previous patch as well but I got a bit 
stuck because I wanted to try to solve the command order issue that 
Aaron mentioned. In fact, I agree with him in this point. However, I 
figured out that more preceding patches might be required to get this 
proberly done.
The issue is that I would like to have all code that changes the master 
lcore placed completely in eal_common_options.c.
Something like eal_common_sanity_check() and eal_common_configure() 
functions would be needed because eal_parse_common_option() is just 
called within the option parsing loop. Maybe we can improve this later?

I am fine with this patch but I have some comments inlined.
In general: acknowledged from my side.

Thanks a lot,

Simon

A space is missing in this message.

It might be helpful to return another error code (e.g., -2) that signals 
that the specified lcore is not part of the lcore mask.

It might be nice here to get another message displayed whenever the 
specified lcore is not part of the core mask (see comment ahead).
