Hi, Chengfeng

Thank you for the fix, we can adopt this (ie Upstream ML is not "wrong place" 😊)
I have some minor comment about:
- the problem should be described in past tense (should b e"sh->txpp.mutex WAS not correctly")
- headline should be more specific, like "fix mutex unlock in txpp cleanup")
- "Fixes:" tag should be present
- Cc: stable@dpdk.org  should be present

Could you, please, update and send v3 ?

With best regards,
Slava
