Van Haaren, Harry July 22, 2020, 10:37 a.m. UTC
This commit fixes a potential race condition in the tests
where the lcore running a service would increment a counter
that was already reset by the test-suite thread. The resulting
race-condition incremented value could cause CI failures, as
indicated by DPDK's CI.

This patch fixes the race-condition by making use of the
added rte_service_lcore_active() API, which indicates when
a service-core is no longer in the service-core polling loop.

The unit test makes use of the above function to detect when
all statistics increments are done in the service-core thread,
and then the unit test continues finalizing and checking state.

Fixes: f28f3594ded2 ("service: add attribute API")

v3:
- Refactor while() to for() to simplify (Harry)
- Use SERVICE_DELAY instead of magic const 1 (Phil)
- Add Phil's reviewed by tag from ML

v2:
Thanks for discussion on v1, this v2 fixup for the CI
including previous feedback on ML.
