 Compilation options
-These options can be modified in the ``.config`` file.
-- ``CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_MLX5_VDPA_PMD`` (default **n**)
-  Toggle compilation of librte_pmd_mlx5 itself.
-- ``CONFIG_RTE_IBVERBS_LINK_DLOPEN`` (default **n**)
-  Build PMD with additional code to make it loadable without hard
-  dependencies on **libibverbs** nor **libmlx5**, which may not be installed
-  on the target system.
-  In this mode, their presence is still required for it to run properly,
-  however their absence won't prevent a DPDK application from starting (with
-  ``CONFIG_RTE_BUILD_SHARED_LIB`` disabled) and they won't show up as
-  missing with ``ldd(1)``.
-  It works by moving these dependencies to a purpose-built rdma-core "glue"
-  plug-in which must either be installed in a directory whose name is based
-  on ``CONFIG_RTE_EAL_PMD_PATH`` suffixed with ``-glue`` if set, or in a
-  standard location for the dynamic linker (e.g. ``/lib``) if left to the
-  default empty string (``""``).
-  This option has no performance impact.
-- ``CONFIG_RTE_IBVERBS_LINK_STATIC`` (default **n**)
-  Embed static flavor of the dependencies **libibverbs** and **libmlx5**
-  in the PMD shared library or the executable static binary.
 .. note::
-   For BlueField, target should be set to ``arm64-bluefield-linux-gcc``. This
-   will enable ``CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_MLX5_VDPA_PMD`` and set
-   ``RTE_CACHE_LINE_SIZE`` to 64. Default armv8a configuration of make build and
-   meson build set it to 128 then brings performance degradation.
