Subject: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH] doc: fix names of UIO drivers
Date: Thu, 18 Mar 2021 12:00:49 +0100
Message-ID: <20210318110049.2048166-1-thomas@monjalon.net> (raw)

Fix typos in the names of kernel drivers based on UIO,
and make sure the generic term for the interface is UIO in capitals.

Fixes: 3a78b2f73206 ("doc: add virtio crypto PMD guide")
Fixes: 3cc4d996fa75 ("doc: update VFIO usage in qat crypto guide")
Fixes: 39922c470e3c ("doc: add known uio_pci_generic issue for i40e")
Fixes: 86fa6c57a175 ("doc: add known igb_uio issue for i40e")
Fixes: beff6d8e8e2e ("net/netvsc: add documentation")
