[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2 3/3] common/qat: add dual thread support

Fri Sep 6 18:12:29 CEST 2019


Remove the limitation whereby enqueue and dequeue must be
done in same thread.
The inflight calculation is reworked to be thread-safe for 2
threads - note this is not general multi-thread support, i.e
all enqueues to a qp must still be done in one thread and
all dequeues must be done in one thread, but enqueues and
dequeues may be in separate threads.
Documentation updated.
