Enabling/disabling of promiscuous mode is not always successful and
it should be taken into account to be able to handle it properly.

When correct return status is unclear from driver code, -EAGAIN is used.

Hi

Review for mlx5 part:

Added not very important comment below.
You can stay it as is if no new version will be created.

No need the jump, just return ret here and below.

Should return -E_RTE_SECONDARY to be consistent with other handlers
that check primary/secondary.

Should return -E_RTE_SECONDARY here too.

A couple minor comments above. Other than those, patch works fine for enic.
Feel free to add my ack on v2..

Not a real issue, but the enable/disable does exact same thing, slightly
different way, it makes double check if logic is different,
can you adapt one of them for both please.

"
diag = foo();
dev->data->promiscuous = (diag == 0) ? 1 : old_promiscuous;
"
vs

"
dev->data->promiscuous = 0;
diag = bar();
if (diag != 0)
	dev->data->promiscuous = old_promiscuous;
"

Should we add a note what is expected return value? This information is not
available anyplace, it may help driver developers.

I think PMD shouldn't be setting this variable, it is already set by the API.
I quickly checked if an internal function requires this but it looks like it has
been set by mistake, I think we can remove this.

I simply did not want to touch the logic in big patch series.
Don't know why, but enable sets promiscuous=1 after callback,
but disable does it before callback. That's why the difference.
Logically it is a separate change and I definitely don't want to
mix it.

It is set after callback in the case of enable.

I see, but do we need it enabled earlier?

Not sure that I understand the question, but tap_ioctl() does not use it.
So, it is safe to move just before tap_flow_implicit_create().

Thanks, will fix in the next version and install libverbs-dev to
be able to test build.

Thanks, but this one is more tricky from build point of view to enable
AF_XDP PMD build. Failed to build even with 5.0.0 kernel and headers
on Ubuntu 18.04. So, I will rely on your and automation build checks.

Will try to fix in the next version.

I'll fix in the next version, but please, note that -ENOTSUP has
special handling in ethdev patch on config restore. It looks like
different error code should not be a problem here, but please, check.

Andrew,

I see v3 returns -E_RTE_SECONDARY. Thank you. For enic, it does not
affect the new error checking in config_restore. In a secondary
process, enic's dev_start handler fails first, so rte_eth_dev_start
never gets to call config_restore.

I think 'dev->data->promiscuous' shouldn't be set be PMD dev_ops, and API
already does it. Is there a specific reason in tap to set this in dev_ops? If
not can we remove setting 'dev->data->promiscuous' from dev_ops?

The problem is the following: right now enable function sets
data->promiscuous after driver callback execution, some drivers
definitely use the variable internally and require it to be set before
some driver operations. That's why these drivers set it on entry.
However, it does not mean that no drivers rely on the fact that
data->promiscuous value is set to 1 after callback. Most likely these
drivers are buggy since it is false in the case of configuration restore
on startup, but anyway it is not that simply.

Yes, I would prefer to avoid setting data->promiscuous from driver
code in enable/disable callbacks, but it should be a separate patch
which change it.

Right now:

net/bnxt sets data->promiscuous=1 on configure if Rx mode is VMDQ_DCB

net/mlx4 sets data->promiscuous always on enable/disable entry

net/octeontx sets data->promiscuous before exit from callback and
I think it can be safely removed since API functions definitely do it
before or after callback.

net/softnic sets data->promiscuous=1 on driver register

net/tap sets data->promiscuous=1 in enable/disable hooks before
tap_flow_implicit_create()

net/nfb sets data->promiscuous in driver init

net/octeontx2 sets data->promiscuous in the middle of processing, but
I guess before it is really used

Thanks for the detailed clarification, I assumed it just introduced by mistake,
with current status agree to handle this on a separate patch.
