Subject: Re: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] net/mlx5: fix flow META item validation
Date: Wed, 1 Jul 2020 18:02:31 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <AM0PR0502MB4019FBE58AFBB797E0B4810CD26C0@AM0PR0502MB4019.eurprd05.prod.outlook.com> (raw)

From: Shy Shyman
> When flow is inserted with meta match item it requires a certain register
> support.
> As part of the flow validation of such flows, the validation function is missing
> a check that the mlx5 driver is not in legacy mode in terms of extended meta
> data support (MLX5_XMETA_MODE_LEGACY flag).
> If the driver is in legacy mode it will cause downstream function that allocates
> needed register for meta data.
> The fix checks explicitly the conditions for support of meta data in FDB mode.
> if the conditions are not met an error message will be issued.
> Fixes: 9bf26e1318 ("ethdev: move egress metadata to dynamic field")
