            Bug ID: 538
           Summary: Incorrect packets sent by mlx5 with multiseg
                    configuration in testpmd
           Product: DPDK
           Version: 18.11
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: Normal
         Component: testpmd
          Assignee: dev@dpdk.org
          Reporter: david.marchand@redhat.com
  Target Milestone: ---

This is something that Dumitru Ceara caught.

Filing the bz for him as he can't work on a patch right now.

Configuring multisegments in testpmd with the txpkts option, the mlx5 driver
will send truncated packets.

As far as we understand, this is because testpmd does not ask for
DEV_TX_OFFLOAD_MULTI_SEGS offload.
But since the problem is only reproduced with mlx5 driver, this might ask for
more investigation.
