Hi Thomas and all

Are there any objections to this patch? If there are no objections to it, could someone perhaps ack it?

Thanks,
Anatoly

Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v8] eal: map PCI memory resources after hugepages

Multi-process DPDK application must mmap hugepages and PCI resources into the same virtual address space. By default the virtual addresses are chosen by the primary process automatically when calling the mmap.
But sometimes the chosen virtual addresses aren't usable in secondary process - for example, secondary process is linked with more libraries than primary process, and the library occupies the same address space that the primary process has requested for PCI mappings.

This patch makes EAL try and map PCI BARs right after the hugepages (instead of location chosen by mmap) in virtual memory, so that PCI BARs have less chance of ending up in random places in virtual memory.

No objections, just a quick request for clarification below.

Why has this check been removed from here. I assume it is replaced by a new
check in secondary processes that I see added below, but perhaps you could explain
the reason for the change?

Sure. The reason behind that change is that we can't expect that we will get a mapping at exact same address (for whatever reasons, i.e. something else is mapped there, alignment, etc.), and in primary process, it's not an error. In other words, removing this check makes it a "best-effort" type mechanism, rather than mandates PCI resources to be mapped exactly after hugepages, exactly one after another. "Wrong" mapping will still result in failure in secondary processes, and we still are risking mapping something somewhere the secondary process can't map, but that probability is decreased because we're now asking EAL to map PCI resources closer to where we most likely have some free virtual space (as evidenced by tests being done by the original submitter of the patch).

Hope that makes sense.

Thanks,
Anatoly
