Yes, the order is correct.

Nelio's v3 is on the mailing list.

I'll rebase it on top of Nelio's v3 to make sure you can merge it. As we are in
a different timezone, I want to minimize any potential issues. :-)

Probably, Raslan needs to send out v8.

And there's one more bug fix from my end.
	[dpdk-dev,v2] net/mlx5: fix deadlock due to buffered slots in Rx SW ring
The bug was reported by Martin Weiser <martin.weiser at allegro-packets.com> on the
mailing list and we might want to wait for his test result for merge.

I'll rebase this bug fix on top of my NEON patchset.

I agree on your idea!
