in unified fashion.

Looks fine, but a couple of minor suggestions.


Since this doesn't modify the mbuf, the arguments should be const.
Since rte_mempool_get_priv returns void *, the cast is unnecessary.

It makes sense.
Please let's make these minor changes in a separate patch
as I am closing -rc1 with the v6 of this series included.

Agree, will prepare the dedicated patch.

rte_mempool_get_priv() does not expect "const", so adding "const" is a bit problematic,
and we should not change the rte_mempool_get_priv() prototype.
Do you think we should take private structure pointer directly from the pool
structure instead of calling rte_mempool_get_priv() ?

I'm not sure it would work. The problem is that to get the priv,
we do pool_ptr + offset. So if we want to remove the const, we'll
have to do a cast to "unconst". Not sure it is worth doing it.

OK, I'll just remove not necessary (struct rte_pktmbuf_pool_private*) cast and
will not introduce const qualifier for the parameter.

I've checked the rte_mempool_get_priv() usage - in all header files there
are the type casts. The "rte_mbuf.h" contains the rte_pktmbuf_priv_size() and
rte_pktmbuf_data_room_size(), both provide the cast.  What is the reason?
C++ compatibility? Should we remove the cast in rte_pktmbuf_priv_flags()?

With best regards,
Slava

Removing the cast will certainly break C++ code using this header.
There is a similar case in commit a2ff2827dc84 ("mbuf: fix C++ build on

In my opinion it can stay as it is now.
