[dpdk-dev] [PATCH] net/virtio: add platform memory ordering feature support

Ilya Maximets i.maximets at samsung.com
Fri Dec 14 16:38:12 CET 2018


VIRTIO_F_ORDER_PLATFORM is required to use proper memory barriers
in case of HW vhost implementations like vDPA.

DMA barriers (rte_cio_*) are sufficent for that purpose.

Previously known as VIRTIO_F_IO_BARRIER.

Signed-off-by: Ilya Maximets <i.maximets at samsung.com>
---

Based on "[RFC] net/virtio: use real barriers for vDPA".

RFC --> PATCH:
  * Dropped vendor-specific hack to determine if we need real barriers.
  * Added VIRTIO_F_ORDER_PLATFORM feature definition and checking.

Note: Patch to change the name of the feature from VIRTIO_F_IO_BARRIER
      to VIRTIO_F_ORDER_PLATFORM is not merged yet:
