[dpdk-dev] [PATCH] net/virtio: get all pending Rx packets in altivec vectorized paths

David Christensen drc at linux.vnet.ibm.com
Mon Sep 30 20:42:16 CEST 2019


The loop to read packets does not take all packets as the number of
available packets (nb_used) is decremented in the loop.
Take all available packets provides a performance improvement of 3%.
