+
+The mbuf input ``input`` is mandatory for all BBDEV PMDs and is the
+incoming code block or transport block data.
+
+The mbuf output ``output`` is mandatory and is the encoded CB(s). In
+CB-mode ut contains the encoded CB of size ``e`` (E  in 3GPP TS 38.212
+section 6.2.5). In TB-mode it contains multiple contiguous encoded CBs
+of size ``ea`` or ``eb``.
+The ``output`` buffer is allocated by the application with enough room
+for the output data.
+
+The encode interface works on both a code block (CB) and a transport
+block (TB) basis.
+
+  **NOTE:** All enqueued ops in one ``rte_bbdev_enqueue_enc_ops()``
+  call belong to one mode, either CB-mode or TB-mode.
+
+The valid modes of operation are:
+
+* CB-mode: one CB (attach CRC24B if required)
+* CB-mode: one CB making up one TB (attach CRC24A if required)
+* TB-mode: one or more CB of a partial TB (attach CRC24B(s) if required)
+* TB-mode: one or more CB of a complete TB (attach CRC24AB(s) if required)
+
+In CB-mode if ``RTE_BBDEV_LDPC_CRC_24A_ATTACH`` is set then CRC24A
+is appended to the CB. If ``RTE_BBDEV_LDPC_CRC_24A_ATTACH`` is not
+set the application is responsible for calculating and appending CRC24A
+before calling BBDEV. The input data mbuf ``length`` is inclusive of
+CRC24A/B where present and is equal to the code block size ``K``.
+
+In TB-mode, CRC24A is assumed to be pre-calculated and appended to the
+inbound TB data buffer, unless the ``RTE_BBDEV_LDPC_CRC_24A_ATTACH``
+flag is set when it is the  responsibility of BBDEV. The input data
+mbuf ``length`` is total size of the CBs inclusive of any CRC24A and
+CRC24B in the case they were appended by the application.
+
+Not all BBDEV PMDs may be capable of CRC24A/B calculation. Flags
+``RTE_BBDEV_LDPC_CRC_24A_ATTACH`` and ``RTE_BBDEV_LDPC_CRC_24B_ATTACH``
+inform the application of the relevant capability. These flags can be set
+in the ``op_flags`` parameter to indicate BBDEV to calculate and append
+CRC24A to CB before going forward with LDPC encoding.
+
+The difference between the partial and full-size TB is that BBDEV needs
+the index of the first CB in this group and the number of CBs in the group.
+The first CB index is given by ``r`` but the number of the CBs is
+calculated by BBDEV before signalling to the driver.
+
+The number of CBs in the group should not be confused with ``c``, the
+total number of CBs in the full TB (``C`` as per 3GPP TS 38.212 section 5.2.2)
+
+Figure 13.1 above showing the Turbo encoding of CBs using BBDEV
+interface in TB-mode is also valid for LDPC encode.

+BBDEV LDPC Decode Operation
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+The operation flags that can be set for each LDPC decode operation are
+given below.
+
+  **NOTE:** The actual operation flags that may be used with a specific
+  BBDEV PMD are dependent on the driver capabilities as reported via
+  ``rte_bbdev_info_get()``, and may be a subset of those below.

+
+The mbuf input ``input`` encoded CB data is mandatory for all BBDEV PMDs
+and is the Virtual Circular Buffer data stream with null padding.
+Each byte in the input circular buffer is the LLR value of each bit of
+the original CB.
+
+The mbuf output ``hard_output`` is mandatory and is the decoded CBs size
+K (CRC24A/B is the last 24-bit in each decoded CB).
+
+The mbuf output ``soft_output`` is optional and is an LLR rate matched
+output of size ``e`` (this is ``E`` as per 3GPP TS 38.212 section 6.2.5).
+
+The mbuf input ``harq_combine_input`` is optional and is a buffer with
+the input to the HARQ combination function of the device. If the
+capability RTE_BBDEV_LDPC_INTERNAL_HARQ_MEMORY_IN_ENABLE is set
+then the HARQ is stored in memory internal to the device and not visible
+to BBDEV.
+
+The mbuf output ``harq_combine_output`` is optional and is a buffer for
+the output of the HARQ combination function of the device. If the
+capability RTE_BBDEV_LDPC_INTERNAL_HARQ_MEMORY_OUT_ENABLE is set
+then the HARQ is stored in memory internal to the device and not visible
+to BBDEV.
+
+The output mbuf data structures are expected to be allocated by the
+application with enough room for the output data.
+
+As with the LDPC encode, the decode interface works on both a code block
+(CB) and a transport block (TB) basis.
+
+  **NOTE:** All enqueued ops in one ``rte_bbdev_enqueue_dec_ops()``
+  call belong to one mode, either CB-mode or TB-mode.
+
+The valid modes of operation are:
+
+* CB-mode: one CB (check CRC24B if required)
+* CB-mode: one CB making up one TB (check CRC24A if required)
+* TB-mode: one or more CB making up a partial TB (check CRC24B(s) if required)
+* TB-mode: one or more CB making up a complete TB (check CRC24B(s) if required)
+
+The mbuf ``length`` is inclusive of CRC24A/B where present and is equal
+the code block size ``K``.
+
+The first CB Virtual Circular Buffer (VCB) index is given by ``r`` but the
+the number of the remaining CB VCBs is calculated automatically by BBDEV
+and passed down to the driver.
+
+The number of remaining CB VCBs should not be confused with ``c``, the
+total number of CBs in the full TB (``C`` as per 3GPP TS 38.212 section 5.2.2)
+
+The ``length`` is total size of the CBs inclusive of any CRC24A and CRC24B in
+case they were appended by the application.
+
+Figure 13.2 above showing the Turbo decoding of CBs using BBDEV
+interface in TB-mode is also valid for LDPC decode.
