From: Vamsi Attunuru <vattunuru@marvell.com>

eal flag autotest fails when multiple mem size flags are passed
to --socket-mem option irrespective of RTE_MAX_NUMA_NODES.

Patch fixes --socket-mem option by setting enough numbers
of numa node mem flags based on RTE_MAX_NUMA_NODES config.

Fixes: 45f1b6e8680a ("app: add new tests on eal flags")

V3 changes:
* Pass buffer size info to populate socket mem routine which
strlcpy requires.

V2 changes:
* Add routine to populate --socket-mem option and use it to form
valid and invalid test commands.

You don't need this temp buffer.

buf is buf_size large, not SOCKET_MEM_STRLEN.

How about the following:

/* This function writes in passed buf pointer a valid --socket-mem= option
 * for num_sockets then concatenates the provided suffix string.
 *
 * Example for num_sockets 4, mem "2", suffix "plop"
 * --socket-mem=2,2,2,2plop
 */
static void
populate_socket_mem_param(int num_sockets, const char *mem,
                const char *suffix, char *buf, size_t buf_size)
{
        unsigned int offset = 0;
        int written;
        int i;

        written = snprintf(&buf[offset], buf_size - offset, "--socket-mem=");
        if (written < 0 || written + offset >= buf_size)
                return;
        offset += written;

        for (i = 0; i < num_sockets - 1; i++) {
                written = snprintf(&buf[offset], buf_size - offset,
                        "%s,", mem);
                if (written < 0 || written + offset >= buf_size)
                        return;
                offset += written;
        }

        written = snprintf(&buf[offset], buf_size - offset, "%s%s", mem,
                suffix);
        if (written < 0 || written + offset >= buf_size)
                return;
        offset += written;
}

See below for usage.

With the proposed populate_socket_mem_param, it becomes:

        populate_socket_mem_param(num_sockets, "0", "",
                        arg2_socket_mem, sizeof(arg2_socket_mem));

What happens when num_socket == 1?

With the proposed populate_socket_mem_param, it would become:

        populate_socket_mem_param(num_sockets - 1, "2", ",",
                        arg3_socket_mem, sizeof(arg3_socket_mem));

But we need to ensure that we have at least two sockets before
starting the test on argv3.

Idem argv3.

Here, this test requires at least 3 sockets so that we can test at minimum 2,,2.

The comment says you want to generate a string with 2M per socket, not
DEFAULT_MEM_SIZE.

Idem 2M, not DEFAULT_MEM_SIZE.

I prepared a patch with my comments addressed, can you have a look ?
