> Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2 2/4] net/mlx5: replace IPC socket with EAL
> Socket API is used for IPC in order for secondary process to acquire Verb
> command file descriptor. The FD is used to remap UAR address. The new
> multi-process APIs (rte_mp) in EAL are newly introduced. mlx5_socket.c is
> replaced with mlx5_mp.c, which uses the new APIs.
> As it is PMD global infrastructure, only one IPC channel is established.
> All the IPC message types may have port_id in the message if there is need
> to reference a specific device.
