No, I don’t know. For my application I’ve found that nb_segs with it’s limit in 256 segments is very annoying and I’ve decided not to use DPDK functions that dealt with nb_segs… But it is not about the rte_pktmbuf_attach() function and the patch.

I don’t know. It depends of the usage. Will someone needs to chain two chains of mbuf?
