The ipv4_multicast sample application was dropping packets
when using mbuf clone. When creating an L2 header and copying
metadata from the source packet, the ol_flags were also copied
along with all the other metadata. Because the cloned packet
had IND_ATTACHED_MBUF flag set in its ol_flags,
this caused the packets to never be freed when using rte_pktmbuf_free.
Since copying ol_flags from the cloned packet is
not necessary in the first place, just don't do it.

Hi Herakliusz,

Since pkt->ol_flags might set some other bits except IND_ATTACHED_MBUF, how about set its value to original pkt->ol_flags?

Regards,
Dong

It could be done, but not sure what is the point?
Which flags you think we need to copy from cloned mbuf (segment #2) to new header?

Hi Konstantin,

In this example, no flags be set by user, so no need to copy flags from original  mbuf.
I'm thinking about some DPDK developers may create their own application based on this example,  they add some flags before packet be cloned.

Regards,
Dong

Hmm you receive a packet change l2 header and transmit it.
What flags you might need to copy from original header 
considering that only RX flags would be set at present moment?
If you let say want to insert vlan tag (or so), then you'll have to set new TX flags. 
Again, for timestamp you'll need to copy the timestamp value too,
which we don't support in that example.

Hi Dong,
I think that if a developer is to manipulate ol_flags, then its onto that developer to take care of copying ol_flags .

Hi Konstantin & Herakliusz,

In mcast_out_pkt(), new header added and to be the first segment. Driver will check first segment's ol_flags when sending mbuf. So why new first segment didn't inherit old one's ol_flags? This function already copied other mbuf fields from old one.

Since this is an example and reference code, hope developer can reuse it smoothly. If they didn't notice ol_flags not be copied because ol_flags is not changed in this example, they may take some time to debug their application.

This is a tiny change to the patch, I hope it cloud be done.

Thanks,
Dong

What flags you might need to copy from original header considering that only RX flags would be set at present moment?
If you let say want to insert vlan tag (or so), then you'll have to set new TX flags. 
Again, for timestamp you'll need to copy the timestamp value too, which we don't support in that example.

It will check for *TX* flags.
TX flags are not set in cloned mbuf (only RX ones).

Because they are RX flags and they don't' really belong to new packet
we are going to send.
Also, as that bug shows it is error prone.

For that scenario it is not needed.
Surely when user linking two packets manually (as we are doing here) it is his responsibility to update the mbuf fileds properly.
I think this is obvious thing and probably already mentioned in the docs.

In the code , function mcast_out_pkt() has the following code,

	/* copy metadata from source packet*/
	hdr->port = pkt->port;
	hdr->vlan_tci = pkt->vlan_tci;
	hdr->vlan_tci_outer = pkt->vlan_tci_outer;
	hdr->tx_offload = pkt->tx_offload;
	hdr->hash = pkt->hash;

all these are useless , is that right?
I will commit a patch to delete them later.
