Hi, David,

For your question, "Is it normal to see all patches with the exact same test
report?"
Yes, we always test a series, rather than a single patch. You can see the exact
same report
on any patch in a series. (it's convenient, you don't need backward to search
the header of the series, then check result)

" One thing that comes to mind, do we have dpdk headers installed system-
> wide on the Intel CI server(s)?"

Sure, we do. We don't see any problem on other patch compilation, so far. but
it's strange
that your V2 and V3 is same, but v3 test is failed. (code base is same). So I
will try to re-run
your series(v3), and check what's changed on CI system between the 2 days. Is
that helpful?

Regards,
Zhaoyan Chen

Convenience is subject to interpretation :-).
Other CI systems send a single report which is more sane for me.

Just to be sure.
By this, you mean that you have some dpdk headers installed on the CI
system in /usr?

Having those headers most likely exacerbates races with dpdk headers
copy in the building directory.
This could be where my series failed.

I think these tests have 2 purposes:
        - sending quick error feedback to the author
        - check that all is green before merging
In both cases we don't need to have the same report duplicated,
because we check for failures in all patches anyway.

I suggest sending the series report only on the last patch of the series.
