  Hi All,

Below is a series of patches to add a new API function to allow DPDK
applications to access the private data area of the mbuf, if one exists.

This eliminates the repeated code in applications to access the private
data area and makes the API a bit more complete, since there are already
accessor functions to access the start of the buffer, the start of data, etc.

The first patch [1 of 4] adds the accessor function to rte_mbuf.h.

The other three patches clean up other code to use this new function.

Please let me know what you think.


* Change 'md' to 'm' in rte_mbuf_to_priv().
* Remove check of m->priv_len in rte_mbuf_to_priv() to avoid confusion
  if used with indirect mbufs.
