Subject: Re: [dpdk-stable] [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2] net: prepare the outer ipv4 hdr for checksum
Date: Tue, 3 Aug 2021 13:29:00 +0100

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for the review.

I did the git grep rte_net_intel_cksum_prepare and git grep
PKT_TX_OUTER_UDP_CKSUM. Following are the two drivers that use the function
to prepare headers for checksum which also uses the outer_udp_checksum
offload within drivers.

1) Hisilicon hns3

2) Wangxun txgbe

1) has implemented its own version of functions to prepare for outer header
checksum. It may benefit/impact from the change.

The function "rte_net_intel_cksum_prepare" is intel specific and intel
cards do not support outer l4 checksum offload. DPDK may provide a generic
version of the same function which can be used in different drivers.
