The header was missing the extern "C" directive which causes name
mangling of functions by C++ compilers, leading to linker errors
complaining of undefined references to these functions.

Could you add a Fixes tag please?

Hi Stephen,
Should I reference the commit that created rte_mbuf_dyn.h for the Fixes tag?

PS: this is my first time submitting a patch to DPDK, so forgive me if this
is covered in the contributing doc, but I couldn't find anything that
applied to this situation

Yes, it should reference the patch that introduced the issue. In this case,
it should be:

  Fixes: 4958ca3a443a ("mbuf: support dynamic fields and flags")

Can you please also change the title to start with "fix", for
instance like this:

  mbuf: fix inclusion from c++

You can also add "Cc: stable@dpdk.org" in the commit log.

Some documentation can be found in doc/guides/contributing/patches.rst

Thanks,
Olivier

Thanks for the pointers. I've made the changes above. However I don't
know if I'm using the message ID for --in-reply-to correctly, since I
seem to be creating a new thread each time.

Thanks,

You can get the message ID in various places.
I usually take the info from patchwork and update the previous patch
state to Superseded at the same time.

So in your case, the v1 patch was:
http://patchwork.dpdk.org/patch/85878/

Message ID: 20201229194144.17824-1-ashish.sadanandan@gmail.com

So for the v2:
git send-email --to dev@dpdk.org --cc-cmd ./devtools/get-maintainer.sh
--cc XXX --in-reply-to
'20201229194144.17824-1-ashish.sadanandan@gmail.com' v2-*.patch
