        "content": "HI, Thomas\n\nJust as zhang, helin's said in his pacth \"[dpdk-dev] [PATCH 2/5] ethdev: add new ops of 'check_command_supported' and 'rx_classification_filter_ctl'\":\n\n'rx_classification_filter_ctl' is for receive classification filter configuring. e.g. hash function configuration, flow director configuration. It is a common API where a lot of commands can be implemented for different sub features.\nWe want to implement several common API for NIC specific features, to avoid creating quite a lot of ops in 'struct eth_dev_ops'. The idea came from ioctl.\n\nBecause about flow director feature, there is large gap between i40e and ixgbe. The existed flow director APIs looks specific to IXGBE, so I choose this new API to implement i40e's flow director feature.\n\nHere, I briefly describe how the new 'rx_classification_filter_ctl' works:\n\nThe API is like below:\ntypedef int (*eth_rx_classification_filter_ctl_t)(struct rte_eth_dev *dev,\n\t\t\t\t\t\t  enum rte_eth_command cmd,\n\t\t\t\t\t\t  void *arg);\nDefine a head file called rte_i40e.h in lib/librte_pmd_i40e, which contains the definition about structures specific to i40e, linked to the arg parameters above.\nDefine a head file called rte_eth_features.h in lib/librte_ether, which contains the commands' definition linked to cmd parameters above.\nAnd if user want to use i40e specific features, then the head file rte_i40e.h need to be included user's application, for example, test-pmd. And user can encode these structures and call XXX_ctl API to configure their features.\n\nDo you think it make sense?\n\nAnd about the rename things, I will move it to a separate patch.\n\n\n> -----Original Message-----\n> From: Thomas Monjalon [mailto:thomas.monjalon@6wind.com]\n> Sent: Wednesday, August 27, 2014 10:23 PM\n> To: Wu, Jingjing\n> Cc: dev@dpdk.org\n> Subject: Re: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2 2/7] ethdev: define new ethdev API\n> rx_classification_filter_ctl\n> \n> Hi Jingjing,\n> \n> 2014-08-27 10:13, Jingjing Wu:\n> > support a new ethdev API rx_classification_filter_ctl for all\n> > the configuration or queries for receive classification filters.\n> > this patch supports commands the API used below:\n> >   RTE_CMD_FDIR_RULE_ADD\n> >   RTE_CMD_FDIR_RULE_DEL\n> >   RTE_CMD_FDIR_FLUSH\n> >   RTE_CMD_FDIR_INFO_GET\n> \n> Could you explain why existing API (flow director + filters) is not enough?\n> I'd really like to see a common API for all filtering stuff.\n> \n> > -/* for 40G only */\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_NONF_IPV4_UDP_SHIFT           31\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_NONF_IPV4_TCP_SHIFT           33\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_NONF_IPV4_SCTP_SHIFT          34\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_NONF_IPV4_OTHER_SHIFT         35\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_FRAG_IPV4_SHIFT               36\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_NONF_IPV6_UDP_SHIFT           41\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_NONF_IPV6_TCP_SHIFT           43\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_NONF_IPV6_SCTP_SHIFT          44\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_NONF_IPV6_OTHER_SHIFT         45\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_FRAG_IPV6_SHIFT               46\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_FCOE_OX_SHIFT                 48\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_FCOE_RX_SHIFT                 49\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_FCOE_OTHER_SHIFT              50\n> > -#define ETH_RSS_L2_PAYLOAD_SHIFT              63\n> > +/* Packet Classification Type for 40G only */\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_NONF_IPV4_UDP              31\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_NONF_IPV4_TCP              33\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_NONF_IPV4_SCTP             34\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_NONF_IPV4_OTHER            35\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_FRAG_IPV4                  36\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_NONF_IPV6_UDP              41\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_NONF_IPV6_TCP              43\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_NONF_IPV6_SCTP             44\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_NONF_IPV6_OTHER            45\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_FRAG_IPV6                  46\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_FCOE_OX                    48 /* not used */\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_FCOE_RX                    49 /* not used */\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_FCOE_OTHER                 50 /* not used */\n> > +#define ETH_PCTYPE_L2_PAYLOAD                 63\n> \n> Why is it specific to i40e?

But the concern is downward compatibility. \nUsers who is planning update DPDK version need to change their code\nto adapt such changes.\nThat's why we choose a new API instead of modifying current APIs. And \nOf course, the ideal plan is adding such XXX_ctl function in Ixgbe and\nIgb to moving smoothly without removing current APIs.\nI'm not sure whether I understanding correctly about the importance of\ncompatibility. \n\n> > The API is like below:\n> > typedef int (*eth_rx_classification_filter_ctl_t)(struct rte_eth_dev *dev,\n> > \t\t\t\t\t\t  enum rte_eth_command cmd,\n> > \t\t\t\t\t\t  void *arg);\n> > Define a head file called rte_i40e.h in lib/librte_pmd_i40e, which contains\n> > the definition about structures specific to i40e, linked to the arg\n> > parameters above.\n> > Define a head file called rte_eth_features.h in lib/librte_ether, which\n> > contains the commands' definition linked to cmd parameters above.\n> \n> Why creating a rte_eth_features.h?
