1.2. Removed Items

  • eal: Removed the deprecated function rte_get_master_lcore() and the iterator macro RTE_LCORE_FOREACH_SLAVE.
  • eal: The old API arguments that were deprecated for blacklist/whitelist are removed. Users must use the new block/allow list arguments.
  • mbuf: Removed offload flag PKT_RX_EIP_CKSUM_BAD. The PKT_RX_OUTER_IP_CKSUM_BAD flag should be used as a replacement.
  • ethdev: Removed the port mirroring API. A more fine-grain flow API action RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SAMPLE should be used instead. The structures rte_eth_mirror_conf and rte_eth_vlan_mirror and the functions rte_eth_mirror_rule_set and rte_eth_mirror_rule_reset along with the associated macros ETH_MIRROR_* are removed.
  • ethdev: Removed the rte_eth_rx_descriptor_done() API function and its driver callback. It is replaced by the more complete function rte_eth_rx_descriptor_status().
  • ethdev: Removed deprecated shared attribute of the struct rte_flow_action_count. Shared counters should be managed using indirect actions API (rte_flow_action_handle_create etc).
  • i40e: Removed i40evf driver. iavf already became the default VF driver for i40e devices, so there is no need to maintain i40evf.

1.3. API Changes

  • eal: The lcore state FINISHED is removed from the enum rte_lcore_state_t. The lcore state WAIT is enough to represent the same state.
  • eal: Made rte_intr_handle structure definition hidden.
  • kvargs: The experimental function rte_kvargs_strcmp() has been removed. Its usages have been replaced by a new function rte_kvargs_get_with_value().
  • cmdline: cmdline_stdin_exit() now frees the cmdline structure. Calls to cmdline_free() after it need to be deleted from applications.
  • cmdline: Made cmdline structure definition hidden on Linux and FreeBSD.
  • cmdline: Made rdline structure definition hidden. Functions are added to dynamically allocate and free it, and to access user data in callbacks.
  • mempool: Added RTE_MEMPOOL_F_NON_IO flag to give a hint to DPDK components that objects from this pool will not be used for device IO (e.g. DMA).
  • mempool: The mempool flags MEMPOOL_F_* will be deprecated in the future. Newly added flags with RTE_MEMPOOL_F_ prefix should be used instead.
  • mempool: Helper macro MEMPOOL_HEADER_SIZE() is deprecated. The replacement macro RTE_MEMPOOL_HEADER_SIZE() is internal only.
  • mempool: Macro to register mempool driver MEMPOOL_REGISTER_OPS() is deprecated. Use replacement RTE_MEMPOOL_REGISTER_OPS().
  • mempool: The mempool API macros MEMPOOL_PG_* are deprecated and will be removed in DPDK 22.11.
  • mbuf: The mbuf offload flags PKT_* are renamed as RTE_MBUF_F_*. A compatibility layer will be kept until DPDK 22.11.
  • net: Renamed s_addr and d_addr fields of rte_ether_hdr structure to src_addr and dst_addr, respectively.
  • net: Added version and ihl bit-fields to struct rte_ipv4_hdr. Existing version_ihl field is kept for backward compatibility.
  • ethdev: Added items and actions PORT_REPRESENTOR, REPRESENTED_PORT to flow API.
  • ethdev: Deprecated items and actions PF, VF, PHY_PORT, PORT_ID. Suggested items and actions PORT_REPRESENTOR, REPRESENTED_PORT instead.
  • ethdev: Deprecated the use of attributes ingress / egress combined with transfer. See items PORT_REPRESENTOR, REPRESENTED_PORT.
  • ethdev: rte_flow_action_modify_data structure updated, immediate data array is extended, data pointer field is explicitly added to union, the action behavior is defined in a more strict fashion and documentation updated. The immediate value behavior has been changed, the entire immediate field should be provided, and offset for immediate source bitfield is assigned from the destination one.
  • vhost: rte_vdpa_register_device, rte_vdpa_unregister_device, rte_vhost_host_notifier_ctrl and rte_vdpa_relay_vring_used vDPA driver interface are marked as internal.
  • cryptodev: The API rte_cryptodev_pmd_is_valid_dev() is modified to rte_cryptodev_is_valid_dev() as it can be used by the application as well as the PMD to check whether the device is valid or not.
  • cryptodev: The rte_cryptodev_pmd.* files are renamed to cryptodev_pmd.* since they are for drivers only and should be private to DPDK, and not installed for app use.
  • cryptodev: A reserved byte from structure rte_crypto_op was renamed to aux_flags to indicate warnings and other information from the crypto/security operation. This field will be used to communicate events such as soft expiry with IPsec in lookaside mode.
  • cryptodev: The field dataunit_len of the struct rte_crypto_cipher_xform moved to the end of the structure and extended to uint32_t.
  • cryptodev: The structure rte_crypto_vec was updated to add tot_len field to support total buffer length to facilitate protocol offload case.
  • cryptodev: The structure rte_crypto_sym_vec was updated to add dest_sgl to support out of place processing.
  • bbdev: Added device info related to data byte endianness processing.
  • eventdev: Moved memory used by timer adapters to hugepage. This will prevent TLB misses if any and aligns to memory structure of other subsystems.
  • fib: Added the rib_ext_sz field to rte_fib_conf and rte_fib6_conf so that user can specify the size of the RIB extension inside the FIB.
  • ip_frag: All macros updated to have RTE_IP_FRAG_ prefix. Obsolete macros are kept for compatibility. DPDK components updated to use new names. Experimental function rte_frag_table_del_expired_entries() was renamed to rte_ip_frag_table_del_expired_entries() to comply with other public API naming convention.

1.4. ABI Changes

  • ethdev: All enums and macros updated to have RTE_ETH prefix and structures updated to have rte_eth prefix. DPDK components updated to use new names.
  • ethdev: The input parameters for eth_rx_queue_count_t were changed. Instead of a pointer to rte_eth_dev and queue index, it now accepts a pointer to internal queue data as an input parameter. While this change is transparent to the user, it still counts as an ABI change, as eth_rx_queue_count_t is used by the public inline function rte_eth_rx_queue_count.
  • ethdev: Made rte_eth_dev, rte_eth_dev_data, rte_eth_rxtx_callback private data structures. rte_eth_devices[] can’t be accessed directly by user any more. While it is an ABI breakage, this change is intended to be transparent for both users (no changes in user app is required) and PMD developers (no changes in PMD is required).
  • vhost: rename struct vhost_device_ops to struct rte_vhost_device_ops.
  • cryptodev: Made rte_cryptodev, rte_cryptodev_data private structures internal to DPDK. rte_cryptodevs can’t be accessed directly by user any more. While it is an ABI breakage, this change is intended to be transparent for both users (no changes in user app is required) and PMD developers (no changes in PMD is required).
  • security: rte_security_set_pkt_metadata and rte_security_get_userdata routines used by inline outbound and inline inbound security processing were made inline and enhanced to do simple 64-bit set/get for PMDs that do not have much processing in PMD specific callbacks but just 64-bit set/get. This avoids a per packet function pointer jump overhead for such PMDs.
  • security: A new option iv_gen_disable was added in structure rte_security_ipsec_sa_options to disable IV generation inside PMD, so that application can provide its own IV and test known test vectors.
  • security: A new option tunnel_hdr_verify was added in structure rte_security_ipsec_sa_options to indicate whether outer header verification need to be done as part of inbound IPsec processing.
  • security: A new option udp_ports_verify was added in structure rte_security_ipsec_sa_options to indicate whether UDP ports verification need to be done as part of inbound IPsec processing.
  • security: A new structure rte_security_ipsec_lifetime was added to replace esn_soft_limit in IPsec configuration structure rte_security_ipsec_xform to allow applications to configure SA soft and hard expiry limits. Limits can be either in number of packets or bytes.
  • security: The new options ip_csum_enable and l4_csum_enable were added in structure rte_security_ipsec_sa_options to indicate whether inner packet IPv4 header checksum and L4 checksum need to be offloaded to security device.
  • security: A new structure esn was added in structure rte_security_ipsec_xform to set an initial ESN value. This permits applications to start from an arbitrary ESN value for debug and SA lifetime enforcement purposes.
  • security: A new structure udp was added in structure rte_security_ipsec_xform to allow setting the source and destination ports for UDP encapsulated IPsec traffic.
  • bbdev: Added capability related to more comprehensive CRC options, shifting values of the enum rte_bbdev_op_ldpcdec_flag_bitmasks.
  • eventdev: New variables rx_event_buf_count and rx_event_buf_size were added in structure rte_event_eth_rx_adapter_stats to get additional status.
  • eventdev: A new structure rte_event_fp_ops has been added which is now used by the fastpath inline functions. The structures rte_eventdev, rte_eventdev_data have been made internal. rte_eventdevs[] can’t be accessed directly by user any more. This change is transparent to both applications and PMDs.
  • eventdev: Re-arranged fields in rte_event_timer to remove holes.
  • ip_frag: Increased default value for config parameter RTE_LIBRTE_IP_FRAG_MAX_FRAG from 4 to 8. This parameter controls maximum number of fragments per packet in IP reassembly table. Increasing this value from 4 to 8 will allow covering the common case with jumbo packet size of 9000B and fragments with default frame size (1500B).
