I upgraded to dodk 18.11 and still see the crash at the exact same place in the driver code. Greatly appreciate if somebody familiar with the code help me resolve this.

Thread 15 "lcore-slave-3" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Subject: Crash in virtio pmd - dpdk 17.11.4

My apologies if this is already reported. I am seeing a crash in virtqueue_enqueue_xmit() function at line#291 in drivers/net/virtio_rxtx.c. This is in DPDK version 17.11.4 and happens under a sustained heavy traffic.

static inline void
virtqueue_enqueue_xmit(struct virtnet_tx *txvq, struct rte_mbuf *cookie,
                       uint16_t needed, int use_indirect, int can_push)
{
        struct virtio_tx_region *txr = txvq->virtio_net_hdr_mz->addr;
        struct vq_desc_extra *dxp;
        struct virtqueue *vq = txvq->vq;
        struct vring_desc *start_dp;
        uint16_t seg_num = cookie->nb_segs;
        uint16_t head_idx, idx;
        uint16_t head_size = vq->hw->vtnet_hdr_size;
        struct virtio_net_hdr *hdr;
        int offload;

       offload = tx_offload_enabled(vq->hw);
        head_idx = vq->vq_desc_head_idx;
        idx = head_idx;
        dxp = &vq->vq_descx[idx];     <-- idx is VQ_RING_DESC_CHAIN_END

        ---------
}

Can somebody familiar with this code let me know if there is any work around for this.

Thanks
Sanjay
