Hi all, Anybody got a chance to look into ?
BTW, am using below two patches for VF reset on DPDK 16.11
support device reset
<http://dpdk.org/ml/archives/dev/2016-June/040289.html> ::ixgbe: implement
device reset on VF
Having few queries based above patches.
1) Are above patches are sufficient to reset VF ? Along with 2 patches, do
we need to have more fix ?
2) May know, Why above patches are not submitted, Were there any side
effect of both patches ?
3) Is the patch applicable to DPDK 2.1 also along with mailbox process
4) Is there any plan to submit above fixes in latest dpdk code ?
Awaiting for the reply .. Thanks in advance.
