Subject: [PATCH v2 0/4] enhancement to i40e PF host driver
- add macro to replace numeric
- rework comments
Current PF host driver can serve DPDK VF well, but the implementation is not complete to support Linux VF, even both DPDK VF and Linux VF use same API set.
Note that the patch are experimental for use and might be removed without prior notice.
This patch set made below changes:
1. Make an enhancement on interface to serve VF, so
both Linux and DPDK VF can be well served.
2. Change API version number so both DPDK and Linux
VF can recognize and select proper command and
data structure to request service. But the
sacrifice is DPDK VF can't identify host driver
(Linux or DPDK) and extended function provided
in DPDK PF host driver can't be used.
This situation will change after negotiate with
Linux maintainer to provide a better mechanism
to identify both PF and VF function.
Chen Jing D(Mark) (4):
net/i40e: change version number to support Linux VF
net/i40e: return correct VSI id
net/i40e: parse more VF parameter and configure
net/i40e: support Linux VF to configure IRQ link list
