[dpdk-dev] [PATCH] net/mlx5: fix RSS key configuration

Tue Dec 26 08:40:41 CET 2017

The trigger for PMD to use the application RSS configuration should be
based on the validity of rss_key and not the rss_key_len. Otherwise
segmentation fault can occur if application provide valid RSS key length
but without any RSS key.

Fixes: 29c1d8bb3e79 ("net/mlx5: handle a single RSS hash key for all protocols")
