Subject: Re: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH] net/mlx5: fix metadata item endianness conversion
Date: Mon, 6 Jan 2020 14:44:19 +0000
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

From: Viacheslav Ovsiienko
> The metadata register c0 field in the matcher might be split into two
> independent fields - the source vport index and META item value. These
> fields have no permanent assigned bits, the configuration is queried from the
> kernel drivers.
> It means the metadata item field might be less than 32 bits.
> Also, the metadata are engaged in datapath and there are no any metadata
> endianness conversions in datapath to provide the better performance, all
> conversions are implemented in rte_flow engine. If there are less than 32
> bits of metadata the extra right shift is needed after endianness conversion
> for little- endian hosts.
> Fixes: acfcd5c52f94 ("net/mlx5: update meta register matcher set")
