The tree dpdk-next-net cannot be pulled in master
because this series is breaking 32-bit compilation with debug enabled.
Two comments about logs in this driver:
1/ We must not accept some DEBUG configs anymore.
Thanks to dynamic log configuration, we can avoid such compile-time options.
The same mistake was done for OCTEONTX mempool.
Please remove all these DEBUG config options for 17.11-rc2.
2/ When printing a 64-bit variable, %ld or %lx is wrong.
You must use PRId64 or PRIx64.
We have two options for this patchset.
Either the compilation is fixed and squashed today, or it is removed from RC1.
Hope you can fix it quickly.
