  Currently, the DPDK submission guidelines allow for contributors to
indicate patch dependencies with their patchseries submission. This is
not broadly supported in CI testing today, although we can expect this
to change soon, as an initiative is about to begin with the goal of
supporting patch dependencies on the patchwork server side. The DPDK
Community Lab is going to allocate developer time towards this effort.
Once that is complete, it should be relatively simple for the CI labs
to begin supporting patch dependencies. In the meantime, it has been
suggested that we begin tracking that support by lab. Once support is
at 100%, this note on the testing page can be removed.

Tested with local Hugo instance.

Zhoumin, are you supporting depends-on at loongson CI right now, or do you
just apply the patch alone in all cases and run testing?

If you do actually have depends-on support, then I'll submit a v2 here with
the correction. Thanks.

Hi, Patrick,

   The Loongson CI doesn't support depends-on right now and we just 
apply the patch alone to test it. Maybe we can support it in the future.
