What about this one when users use external bufs? Why not addressing secondary process here?
If it works for all cases, you should add a condition at the start of this function, if it's secondary, goto err to check mp and return.

Please address the compilation failure on patchwork related to these variables (multiple definitions).

Did you upstream wrong patch?
You said you would address the queue number issue Ajit Khaparde mentioned but you didn't in this patch.
The number of queues should be a multiple of the number of processes?

Same as above.

What about some config commands?
Such as "clear port stats all". Should this be allowed by secondary?
And like "port config all rxq". If primary hasn't started ports, should the secondary allowed to change traffic related stuff (offloads, rx/txd, rx/txq and so on)?

About rte flow, what do you mean apply only on its own process on SW side?
If I set number-procs=2, rxq=4
Then on secondary process, I set a flow which directs 192.168.0.1 traffic to queue 0. It seems it will directs this kind of traffic to primary process. But I can't see this rule from primary process side.
Is this behavior right for multiple process?
