- Use rte_malloc() instead of malloc() for the per device 'vdev' structure
  so that it can be shared across processes.
- Only initialize the device if the process type is RTE_PROC_PRIMARY
- Only allow the primary process to do queue setup, start/stop, promisc
  allmulticast, mac add/del, mtu.

I was first considering that this should be multiple patches, but then I
realized that it wouldn't actually make sense (there's no way to do it
and keep the driver from being broken w.r.t. primary/secondary).

Hi John,

I am not sure about these updates. Agree that these functions should
know process type, but all others PMDs don't do this.

Added a few more people for comment, but as far I understand its
application responsibility to NOT call these functions if it is
secondary process.

For device init/uninit, that is part of eal_init() and have to be called
both for primary and secondary process and PMD needs to protect it, for
other functions application's responsibility.

Yes for now it is the policy.
But it is a gray area and it could be clearer with my "ownership proposal":
	http://dpdk.org/ml/archives/dev/2017-September/074656.html
A secondary process could manage the ports it owns.

Feel free to comment the proposal.

I looked at mlx5 and it does something similar with its mlx5_is_secondary() in functions that modify fields in its shared private structure.

I put the checks into the PMD because I didn't want to trust the app and I didn't see checks in the library functions. I assumed that is why it was done in mlx5. I was afraid that the secondary may try to write fields in the shared structure and cause some silent bad behavior, like if secondary sets the MTU then the primary does, then secondary assumes it was different than what it is, or something like that.

I think the ownership concept would help make DPDK more flexible and potentially cleaner. Perhaps ownership checks could be pushed the lib functions, like rte_eth_dev_set_mtu(), and remove all such checks in the PMD(s).

Right, mlx5 also has these checks.

I was afraid that the secondary may try to write fields in the shared structure and cause some silent bad behavior, like if secondary sets the MTU then the primary does, then secondary assumes it was different than what it is, or something like that.

The set values are in the shared memory, so a variable set by secondary
will be visible to primary, via versa. Of course a synchronization
required between primary and secondary processes.

Also why secondary shouldn't be allowed to do some work, like start/stop
the port?

I believe this should be application level concern, at worst libraries
but not drivers.

I don't disagree, but I would need to verify that relaxing the checks would not cause catastrophic errors in case the primary and secondary don't synchronize their actions to the PMD. This will take some more testing. The patch I provided with the checks is safe as is and so if you could accept it for 17.08 with the promise that I will work on relaxing the checks in the next release, I would appreciate it.

Applied to dpdk-next-net/master, thanks.
