Marcin Smoczynski May 14, 2019, 2:04 p.m.
When a component uses either XOPEN_SOURCE or POSIX_C_SOURCE macro
explicitly in its build recipe, it restricts visibility of a non POSIX
features subset, such as IANA protocol numbers (IPPROTO_* macros).
Non standard features are enabled by default for DPDK both for Linux
thanks to _GNU_SOURCE and for FreeBSD thanks to __BSD_VISIBLE. However
using XOPEN_SOURCE or POSIX_(C_)SOURCE in a component causes
__BSD_VISIBLE to be defined to 0 for FreeBSD, causing different feature
sets visibility for Linux and FreeBSD. It restricts from using IPPROTO
macros in public headers, such as rte_ip.h, despite the fact they are
already widely used in sources.

Add __BSD_VISIBLE macro specified unconditionally for FreeBSD targets
which enforces feature sets visibility unification between Linux and
FreeBSD.

Add single -D_GNU_SOURCE to config/meson.build as a project argument
instead of adding separate directive for each project subtree.

This patch solves the problem of build breaks for [1] on FreeBSD [2]
following the discussion [3].

Looks a reasonable cleanup to me. The fact that the same macros are being
defined in multiple places implies that it would be good to consolidate
them.

Is my action required to merge patches? e.g. do I need to send rebased patches (however there are no conflicts at the moment)?
