As some cryptode PMDs have multiprocess support, the secondary
process needs queue-pair to be configured by the primary process before
to use. This patch adds an IPC register function to help the primary
process to register IPC action that allow secondary process to configure
cryptodev queue-pair via IPC messages during the runtime.
After setup, a new "qp_in_used_pid" param stores the PID to provide
the ownership of the queue-pair so that only the PID matched queue-pair
free request is allowed in the future.

Why are we forcing user another alternate API for secondary process to work?
Can we not register the IPC inside rte_cryptodev_queue_pair_setup() ?

As I understand till now, 
You have introduced another API rte_cryptodev_mp_request_register(),
Which will be called by application if primary-secondary communication is required.
And if it is registered, rte_cryptodev_ipc_request() will be called from somewhere(not sure when this will be called).
And the call to rte_cryptodev_queue_pair_setup() from the secondary will do nothing.

Is this a correct understanding? If it is correct, then it is an unnecessary overhead for the application.
We should update the rte_cryptodev_queue_pair_setup instead to handle primary and secondary configuration.
IMO, you do not need to change anything in the library.
Everything can be handled in the PMD. When the queue_pair_setup is called for particular qp_id,
Store the getpid() of the calling process into the priv data of queue pair if it is not already configured
And if configured return failure.
And in case of release you can also check the same.

The configuration of queues for multi process is specific to PMDs.
There may be PMDs which may support same queue pair to be used by different processes.
Rx queue from the qp by one process and Tx queue from the qp by another process.
This will be needed if one process is doing only enqueue and the other only dequeue on the same qp.
So in that case, your implementation will not work.

qp_in_used_pid looks very cryptic, I believe this should be part of queue pair private data of PMD.
Adding this in cryptodev data is not justified. This property is per queue and not per crypto device.
Hence adding in device data does not make sense to me.

A stupid question - how syncronisation is supposed to be guaranteed
with such approach?
Let say secondary process sends an IPC message to configure 
crypto-queue, and at the same moment primary process (for whatever reason)
desicdes to reconfigure same crypto-dev.
Are there any way to prevent such race-conditions to happen?

[KJ] I'm try to solve the following setups: 
The primary process initialized crypto device, but the secondary process is setting up the queue pairs by calling rte_cryptodev_queue_pair_setup().  Although DPDK memzone is visible between processes, the ipsec-mb external library will allocate a buffer using regular malloc and write function pointers to this buffer – the ipsec mb PMD had to call them later in dequeue function to process crypto. Since the function pointer addresses are not shared between processes , so letting secondary process to dequeue a crypto op will case segfault. With above issue in mind, the ipsec_mb PMD add process check to prevent secondary process to setup queue pairs. 

In this design, before secondary process calling rte_cryptodev_queue_pair_setup, I would expect it send out IPC message to primary first. then the rte_cryptodev_ipc_request () will be executed in primary context where rte_cryptodev_queue_pair_setup() is allowed to configure queue pair based on IPC request.  Once the new queue pair setup'ed and related memory been populated by primary, the secondary can call rte_cryptodev_queue_pair_setup() to use it.

[KJ] I think you are right, all the problems I'm try to resolve can be done in ipsec-mb PMD level, it is unnecessary to add new API to the cryptodev library. I will change the design to pmd level and rework the patch.

This is a question we didn't think as comprehensive as you did. With the 
change Kai did at least all Intel PMDs will support that.

I assume we need some feature flag to state that?

Agreed. The PID storage is not mandatory for every PMD but only for some 
(ipsec-mb for example) so we should store the PID info inside the PMD 
queue pair data instead.

+Multi-process IPC request register support
+------------------------------------------
+As some cryptode PMDs have multiprocess support, the queue-pairs used in the
+secondary process are required to be configured by the primary process first.
+The cryptodev IPC request handler provide an alternative way to setup
+queue-pair from the secondary process via IPC messages in the runtime.
+
+The ``rte_cryptodev_mp_request_register`` function, called in primary process,
+register the ``ret_cryptodev_ipc_request`` function for IPC message request
+handling between primary and secondary process.
+The supported IPC request types are:
+
+.. code-block:: c
+    RTE_CRYPTODEV_MP_REQ_QP_SET
+    RTE_CRYPTODEV_MP_REQ_QP_FREE
+
+It up to the secondary process to fill-in required params in order to allow
+``rte_cryptodev_queue_pair_setup`` setup a queue-pair correctly.
+A new ``qp_in_used_pid`` param stores the PID to provide the ownership of the
+queue-pair so that only the PID matched queue-pair free request is allowed
+in the future.
