            Bug ID: 339
           Summary: net/af_packet: af_packet driver is leaving stale
                    socket after device is removed
           Product: DPDK
           Version: 18.02
          Hardware: x86
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: ethdev
          Assignee: dev@dpdk.org

  Target Milestone: ---

I am trying to use af_packet dpdk pmd driver in "ovs with dpdk".
Looks like af_packet driver is leaving stale sockets after device is removed.
The stale sockets can be confirmed by the output of "ss -0" command.

Kindly let me know if this is known/valid issue.
Have suggested a code change in dpdk net/af_packet to fix the issue, please
suggest if this is appropriate fix so that i can submit a patch.

Below is the output of "ss -0" after addition and deletion of port in ovs :

[1] Add port in ovs using command "ovs-vsctl add-port br0 wan -- set Interface
wan type=dpdk options:dpdk-devargs=eth_af_packet0,iface=veth0"
#ss -0
Netid  Recv-Q Send-Q                           Local Address:Port              
                             Peer Address:Port
p_raw  0      0                                            *:veth0             
                                         *

[2] Delete port in ovs using command "ovs-vsctl del-port br0 wan"
#ss -0
Netid  Recv-Q Send-Q                           Local Address:Port              
                             Peer Address:Port
p_raw  0      0                                            *:veth0             
                                         *

"ss -0" output keeps showing stale entry , and the stale entries keeps piling
up with multiple add/del triggered for same port in ovs.
All the entries gets removed only when ovs process is exited.

Went through dpdk net/af_packet code and below are the findings:-
[1] Ring buffers are memory mapped when device is added using rte_dev_probe
[2] There is no corresponding munmap call when device is removed/closed
[3] The issue is fixed by calling munmap from rte_pmd_af_packet_remove() 

Patch for changes done to fix the issue :-
