> We already have other VFIO-related definitions in that file, specifically the PCI defines that aren't present in earlier kernels. This definition is similar in nature - it will be present in kernels starting from 4.5 (when NOIOMMU was introduced), but earlier kernels will need this defined. I didn't want to go similar route with redefining everything VFIO-related, but maybe it makes sense in this case for consistency's sake? E.g.
> #define RTE_VFIO_TYPE1 VFIO_TYPE1_IOMMU [we're already in an ifdef linux >= 3.6, so define type1 unconditionally]
> #if linux < 4.5
> #define RTE_VFIO_NOIOMMU 8
> #define RTE_VFIO_NOIOMMU VFIO_NOIOMMU_IOMMU
> Or something like that?
OK you can keep it as is or define a RTE constant. Up to you.
