Hi Marcin,

> Hi Akhil,
> I've double checked and there is no problem with linking application against
> shared libraries, because inline functions are being inlined during compilation
> and before linking is done. To be more specific: there is not such symbol as
> rte_ipv6_get_next_ext in ipsec-secgw.o (which uses this function in
> prepare_one_packet function).
> There are a number of inline experimental functions defined today  and they are
> mostly (43 out of 59) not listed in maps, e.g. rte_ticketlock functions family
> defined here:
> lib/librte_eal/common/include/generic/rte_ticketlock.h
> Is there any particular reason we should put inlines in maps? Maps are used by
> linker to control versions of shared libraries and inlines are not processed by
> linker.
> I am aware this patchset causes build failures on BSDs - this is a project-wide
> issue which I have addressed here:
> http://patchwork.dpdk.org/patch/53406/
> I'll put a note in the next version of this patchset's cover that it depends on
> abovementioned patchset.

Thanks for correcting me.
