Hi Marvin,

Is it possible to vectorize the processing?

I remember "__rte_always_inline" should start at the first and separate line, otherwise you will get a style issue.

Looks like the code is a strong candidate for vectorization.

A store barrier here is missing, last_avail_idx may be observed before the above enqueue completion on weak memory order architectures.
For x86, a compiler barrier is also required.
