When we bind the ixgbevf to vfio and call the rte_eth_dev_rx_intr_enable
and rte_eth_dev_rx_intr_disable frequently, the interrupt setting
(msi_set_mask_bit) will take more CPU as show below. rte_intr_enable
call the ioctl to map the fd to interrupts frequently.

perf top:
5.45%  [kernel]   [k] msi_set_mask_bit

It is unnecessary to call the rte_intr_enable in
ixgbe_dev_rx_queue_intr_enable. because the fds has been mapped to
interrupt and not unmapped in ixgbe_dev_rx_queue_intr_disable.

This patch add checks for using VFIO.  With the patch, msi_set_mask_bit is
not listed in perl any more. Any suggestion will be welcome.

The patch is not only for ixgbevf, but also for ixgbe, right?
so how about changing the title with net/ixgbe started?

For igb_uio, did you check if it's necessary to call rte_intr_enable every time? Since rte interrupt is not disabled during ixgbevf_dev_rx_queue_intr_disable.

good, remove the rte_intr_enable directly, because intr has been
disable/enable via writing the register in
ixgbevf_dev_rx_queue_intr_disable/enable.

Hi, Tonghao
Thanks for your patch.
It looks that same change can be applied to ixgbe_dev_interrupt_action( )
and ixgbe_dev_interrupt_delayed_handler( ).
Anyway, you can test all these changes with example/l3fwd-power.

Yes, but the irq (e.g mailbox irq) is not  same as rx interrupt
handled frequently.
and it will not affect the performance.

I tested them with  example/l3fwd-power and our apps. It is ok.
I will send v3 to you.
