The idea was to remove the include of the header file, as we never dereference the mbuf pointer, and hence we shouldn't include a header we don't require.

The struct rte_mbuf here is just a forward declaration for the actual rte_mbuf. This allows the rte_event to contain a struct rte_mbuf* without the compiler complaining that it doesn't understand the type.

The current patches apply to dpdk-next-eventdev HEAD, I don't think I understand what you're asking about rebasing.
