As discussed in the release meeting yesterday, that is a regression
and needs to be added.
While I feel slightly tired of new respins this is what we do the
validation for.
So thanks you (all!) for the testing!

I have now applied the referred fix to 19.11.9

FYI: I see this came up ~5 days into the -rc3 testing, but I missed it
so I checked why.
It was breaking the usual subject syntax (double colon) and not
flagged for 19.11.9 (as requested in backport mails and the common
style) in subject or body.

> - rte_flow hit counter doesn't increment, still discussing this internally.

For this issue please tell me until Monday what you expect.
Does it look close to being resolved (then I'll hold -rc4 back a bit
longer) or should I go on planning to release 19.11.9 without it (then
I'd tag -rc4 on Monday).

Generally on -rc4 I think it would be sufficient if you would re-run
your testing as your tests cover the only two things we have touched
in -rc4 (clang 12 and the flow issue).
I'm not "against" more tests, just saying that those should be
sufficient in case no others come back then.
Because other than the issues reported in here all other tests already
came back fully green for -rc3.

FYI the usual non-official WIP repo on
https://github.com/cpaelzer/dpdk-stable-queue/commits/19.11 holds what
19.11.9-rc4 would become if you want to pre-test anything.

This is still totally unknown and not specific to 19.11 series.
I guess this clang issue has to wait for the next stable release then.

> - https://bugs.dpdk.org/show_bug.cgi?id=733

We've identified the patch that needs to be backported for this one.
I have done so and built across all platforms - LGTM.
If your tests could also confirm this once we have -rc4 tagged that
would be great.
