Subject: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH v2] net/qede: change driver's default load parameter
Date: Wed, 6 Jan 2021 18:50:07 +0530
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

Loading ecore clients (PMD or linux kernel driver) having different ecore
versions concurrently, is problematic from device's init/config
perspective. This fix changes driver's default load parameter to have
ecore version validated by MFW. All ecore clients having matching ecore
version should be allowed to load, otherwise MFW should fail the load

Fixes: c5e1108920 ("alter driver's force load behavior")

 - For sharing an adapter between DPDK and Linux drivers, SRIOV needs
   to be enabled. Bind all the PFs to Linux Drivers(qed/qede). Create
   a VF on PFs where DPDK is desired and bind these VFs to qede_pmd.

   Binding of PFs simultaneously to DPDK and Linux drivers on a given
