Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2] doc: announce the removal of legacy virtio support
Date: Mon, 25 May 2020 11:16:06 +0530
Message-ID: <20200525054606.4187060-1-jerinj@marvell.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200523140750.3967959-1-jerinj@marvell.com>

From: Jerin Jacob <jerinj@marvell.com>

The legacy virtio feature is not architecture agnostics.
It relies on x86 IO port scheme support for its working.

The legacy virtio is only the consumer of RTE_KDRV_NONE in DPDK PCI
subsystem. Legacy virtio removal will also optimize DPDK PCI enumeration
management as it does not need to probe RTE_KDRV_NONE based
devices anymore.

Legacy virtio feature removal is planned in the v20.11 release.
