I can't see why this is happening, in the 'mk/rte.lib.mk' we have following:

"
install: _preinstall build _postinstall
build: _preinstall
"

Which should cause the library header files installed before building .c files
in that library.
So when compiling 'rte_class_eth.c', the header files should be already in
install folder.


I can see how/why changing to "" fixes the issue but I am not sure about this fix.
"rte_ethdev.h" is a public header file, that applications will include it in
their applications. In the public library it is more proper to have other
includes from system folder, using format <>.
Again, I can't see why it is failing but I believe we should find another
solution for _internal_ build error.


A very simple solution can be following, but that is also not good, since it
solves the issue by creating a dependency to the order of the header includes:
 diff --git a/lib/librte_ethdev/rte_class_eth.c b/lib/librte_ethdev/rte_class_eth.c
 index 6338355e25..3030c49020 100644
 --- a/lib/librte_ethdev/rte_class_eth.c
