> Subject: [PATCH v2] net/mlx5: fix the hairpin queue capacity
> 
> The hairpin TX/RX queue depth and packet size is fixed in the past.
> When the firmware has some fix or improvement, the PMD will not
> make full use of it. And also, 32 packets for a single queue will not
> guarantee a good performance for hairpin flows. It will make the
> stride size larger and for small packets, it is a waste of memory.
> The recommended stride size is 64B now.
> 
> The parameter of hairpin queue setup needs to be adjusted.
> 1. A proper buffer size should support the standard jumbo frame with
> 9KB, and also more than 1 jumbo frame packet for performance.
> 2. Number of packets of a single queue should be the maximum
> supported value (total buffer size / stride size).
> 
> There is no need to support the max capacity of total buffer size
> because the memory consumption should also be taken into
> consideration.
