Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] eal: update comment about --no-huge option
Date: Wed, 17 Jul 2019 10:56:24 +0200
Message-ID: <20190717085624.30452-1-thomas@monjalon.net> (raw)

The old comment, on top of the function rte_eal_has_hugepages(),
is really outdated and not generic enough.

 /**
  * Whether EAL is using huge pages (disabled by --no-huge option).
- * The no-huge mode cannot be used with UIO poll-mode drivers like igb/ixgbe.
- * It is useful for NIC drivers (e.g. librte_pmd_mlx4, librte_pmd_vmxnet3) or
- * crypto drivers (e.g. librte_crypto_nitrox) provided by third-parties such
- * as 6WIND.
+ * The no-huge mode is not compatible with all drivers or features.
  *
  * @return
  *   Nonzero if hugepages are enabled.
