> The decision to deliver mlx4/mlx5 rdma-core glue plug-ins separately instead
> of generating them at run time due to security concerns [1] led to a few
> issues:
> 
> - They must be present on the file system before running DPDK.
> - Their location must be known to the dynamic linker.
> - Their names overlap and ABI compatibility is not guaranteed, which may
>   lead to crashes.
> 
> This series addresses the above by adding version information to plug-ins
> and taking CONFIG_RTE_EAL_PMD_PATH into account to locate them on the
> file system.
