Subject: [dpdk-web] [PATCH] add build system update as nice to have
Date: Fri, 17 Jan 2020 13:19:13 +0000
Message-ID: <20200117131913.72621-1-ferruh.yigit@intel.com> (raw)

Some headers in DPDK needs to be shared between various libraries, these
are treated as public header by build system and put into same folder,
other libraries can consume the header from this folder.
But this cause a side affect that internal headers exposed to the

A simple sample of this is 'rte_cryptodev_pmd.h', it is provided by
'cryptodev' library and used by crypto PMDs, but this headers shouldn't
be used by applications.

A solution can be using two different interim folders, one for public
headers and other for DPDK wide headers. DPDK components can look both
folders but only ones in the public header folder will be installed to
system folders.
