Subject: Re: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] lib: include rte_memory.h for __rte_cache_aligned

Thanks for reviewing this change.

No error message was found without this patch. This patch follows a good
coding practice to include the header files when it¹s needed, rather than
through some other header files. In the past, we found some data structure
was not cache line aligned due to missing the include, and caused memory
corruption. Compiler did not give warning or error when
__rte_cache_aligned attribute definition is missing. With DPDK latest, I
checked the data structures that used __rte_cache_aligned attributed in
these files, and they are properly aligned. So this patch is mainly for
better coding style now.
