We are seeing an issue when running from the head of the master branch in dpdk-next-net and building with CONFIG_RTE_BUILD_SHARED_LIB=y. When we run testpmd using -d to point to our PMD we get this error
EAL: Error - exiting with code: 1
Cause: Creation of mbuf pool for socket 0 failed: Invalid argument
This error occurs as a result of the rte mempool ops table having 0 entries. This table is populated from a call to rte_mempool_register_ops(). This function gets called in rte_mempool_ring.c via the static initialization MACRO MEMPOOL_REGISTER_OPS and exists in librte_mempool_ring.so. However this library is not loaded when the rte_eal_init() gets called so the static initializers are not yet loaded.
I am requesting advice on the proper way to repair this.
