4  * Merge with upstream DPDK 16.04 release
5  * droping patches/backports that are already upstream in DPDK 16.04
6    - d/p/ubuntu-fix-doc-installpath.patch
7    - d/p/ubuntu-fix-testpmd-without-xen.patch
8    - d/p/ubuntu-fix-lpm-use-after-free-and-leak.patch
9    - d/p/ubuntu-backport-[01-32,34-35] backports for stability
10    - d/p/ubuntu-backport-[36-37] but keep doc and example changes in d/*
11  * droping patches for soname / linking fixups.
12    - Upstream now goes with proper soname/abi/api handling per sublib plus a
13      linker script.
14    - dropped d/p/ubuntu-combined-shared-lib-abiversion.patch
15    - dropped d/p/ubuntu-fix-library-linkage.patch
16  * keeping patches:
17    - d/p/ubuntu-backport-38-* fix for memory leak
18      this now applies as is, so changed from a modified backport to match the
19      post 16.04 upstream commit now.
20    - d/p/ubuntu-backport-33-vhost-user-add-error-handling-for-fd-1023.patch
21    - doc and example changes that were related to d/p/ubuntu-backport-[36-37]
22    - d/p/ubuntu-fix-vhost-user-socket-permission.patch adapted for dpdk-16.04:
23      In the new build system with sublibs the exposed function needs to be
24      listed in lib/librte_eal/linuxapp/eal/rte_eal_version.map
25  * adding upstream backports - can be dropped when merging DPDK 16.07.
26    - d/p/ubuntu-backport-39-lpm-fix-freeing-in-compatibility-mode.patch
27      This was formerly part of a combined patch that we dropped because the
28      majority is upstream (d/p/ubuntu-fix-lpm-use-after-free-and-leak.patch).
29    - d/p/ubuntu-backport-40-linking-fixes-stage-[1-4]-4.patch
30      d/p/ubuntu-backport-44-linking-cleanup.patch
31      Fixing underlinking and overlinking issues in apps and libraries.
32    - d/p/ubuntu-backport-41-fix-install-tar-1.29.patch
33      Fix issues with tar >=1.29 (Yakkety)
34    - d/p/ubuntu-backport-43-increase-default-logging-level.patch
35      avoid default debug messages causing a perf degradation
36    - d/p/ubuntu-backport-43-fix-level-type-retrieving.patch
37      Fix type retrieving which was broken in standard threads
38  * adapt to new build system
39    - drop enabling the following build config symbols as they no more exist
40        CONFIG_RTE_BUILD_COMBINE_LIBS
41    - Sub-Libraries are now packaged in a versioned package per library. That
42      allows consumers of dpdk to just depend on what they need. As well as
43      installation of multiple .so versions concurrently.
44    - added the hidden dependency of librte_eal to librte_mempool
45    - use dpkg-buildflags and properly enable hardening
46  * Adding DKMS package for rte_kni (LP: #1592786)
47
48  [ Ricardo Salveti ]
49  * Adding support for ARM64:
50    - debian/control: adding arm64 to the supported architecture list
51    - debian/rules: supporting dpdk config and machine for arm64
52    - d/p/ubuntu-fix-xenvirt-support-dynamic-page-size.patch: fix build
53      failure on arm64
54    - debian/dpdk-sdk-env.sh: generating the right RTE_TARGET during build
55      time, so we can also make it compatible with ARM64
56    - debian/tests: also making tests compatible with ARM64
57  * Adding DKMS package for igb_uio
58  * Build static dpdk with -fPIC so it can be used by shared libraries
59  * debian/copyright: fixing Canonical's copyright entry
60  * Renaming symbol files so they can match the right package
61  * Drop the arch specific symbol files, as they are identical
62
63  [ Anders Roxell ]
64  * debian/dpdk.init: add remote_fs (lintian)
65  * debian/control: fixing week-library-dev-dependency (lintian)

70
71  * d/p/ubuntu-backport-[36-37] fix virtio issues (LP: #1570195):
72    - don't let DPDK initialize virtio devices still in use by the kernel
73    - this avoids conflicts between kernel and dpdk usage of those devices
74    - an admin now has to unbind/bind devices as on physical hardware
75    - this is in the dpdk 16.04 release and delta can then be dropped
76    - d/dpdk-doc.README.Debian update for changes in virtio-pci handling
77    - d/dpdk.interfaces update for changes in virtio-pci handling
78  * d/p/ubuntu-backport-38... fix for memory leak (LP: #1570466):
79    - call vhost_destroy_device on removing vhost user ports to fix memory leak
80    - this likely is in the dpdk 16.07 release and delta can then be dropped
81  * d/p/ubuntu-fix-vhost-user-socket-permission.patch fox (LP: #1546565):
82    - when vhost_user sockets are created they are owner:group of the process
83    - the DPDK api to create those has no way to specify owner:group
84    - to fix that without breaking the API and potential workaround code in
85      consumers of the library like openvswitch 2.6 for example. This patch
86      adds an EAL commandline option to specify user:group created vhost_user
87      sockets should have.

91dpdk (2.2.0-0ubuntu7) xenial; urgency=medium
92
93  * Increase max_map_count after setting huge pages (LP: #1507921):
94    - The default config of 65530 would cause issues as soon as about 64GB or
95      more are used as 2M huge pages for dpdk.
96    - Increase this value to base+2*#hugepages to avoid issues on huge systems.
97  * d/p/ubuntu-backport-[28-32,34-35] backports for stability (LP: #1568838):
98     - these will be in the 16.04 dpdk release, delta can then be dropped.
99     - 5 fixes that do not change api/behaviour but fix serious issues.
100        - 01 f82f705b lpm: fix allocation of an existing object
101        - 02 f9bd3342 hash: fix multi-process support

107  * d/p/ubuntu-backport-33-vhost-user-add-error-handling-for-fd-1023.patch
108     - this will likely be in dpdk release 16.07 and delta can then be dropped.
109     - fixes a crash on using fd's >1023 (LP: #1566874)
110  * d/p/ubuntu-fix-lpm-use-after-free-and-leak.patch fix lpm_free (LP: #1569375)
111     - the old patches had an error freeing a pointer which had no meta data
112     - that lead to a crash on any lpm_free call
113     - folded into the fix that generally covers the lpm allocation and free
114       weaknesses already (also there this particular mistake was added)

121     - dpdk-init now ensures non-default-hugepage-size mountpoints are
122       available as well.

124       available (e.g. by the admin).
125  * d/dpdk-init fix issues with unassigned devices (LP: #1558485):
126     - dpdk-init no more checks /sys/.../driver of the device unconditionally
127     - removed the superfluous tr call in that path

176     - the dep8 was already taking care of 1G hugepages being not supported in
177       some environments. But it was failing when supported, but not enough

192     - detect and warn if 1G pages are not available but configured.
193     - d/t/test-initscripts now also testing hugepage allocations.
194     - d/dpdk.conf has an option to drop caches to incease the likeliness of
195       successful 1G hugepage allocations (default off).

220    - d/t/control now avoids failing due to "dependencies are unsatisfiable"
221      when fetching packages. The packages architecture restrictions got added
222      to avoid that.
223    - d/t/check-dpdk-supported-arch.sh is called by all DPDK tests to ensure
224      the platform is supported. If not it skips the test.

230  [ Christian Ehrhardt ]
231  * fix libdpdk.so library linking (LP: #1547517)
232    - libdpdk.so now has proper linkage information (was underlinked)
233      Note: this can be dropped when moving to DPDK 2.3 with linker script
234            instead of combined shared lib.
235    - remove reference to extra linkage needed when building against -ldpdk
236      in dpdk-doc README.
237    - add dep8 d/t/test-linkage to verify linking dpdk works as expected.
238  * d/control remove ${shlibs:Depends} on package with no linked binary
239    avoiding dpkg-gencontrol build warning about unknown ${shlibs:Depends}.
240  * d/dpdk-doc.README.debian fix path to DPDK build environment variable
241    helper script in README file.
242  * Update VCS Info in d/control to include our repositories.

252  * Merge from Upstream to DPDK 2.2
253    Remaining changes:
254    - Set soabi for the combined shared library
255  * Drop changes:
256    - configuring RTE_LIBNAME to dpdk as it is the upstream default now
257    - enabled formerly non building components as they build properly in 2.2
258    - d/p/ubunut-avoid-texlive-fonts-extra, d/control:
259      Replace use of DejaVuSansMono is no more needed as upstream changed the
260      font. Thereby we can drop our delta.
261    - d/p/ubuntu-fix-gcc5-ftbs.patch no more needed with DPDK 2.2
262  * Added changes
263    - Disable CONFIG_RTE_NEXT_ABI as required for packaging (git 506f51cc)
264    - Enable LIBRTE_PMD_PCAP which is useful for some DPDK testcase examples
265      this adds a build dependency to libpcap-dev
266    - Fully support DH_VERBOSE for build debugging convenience
267    - adapt to new make infrastructure of dpdk 2.2
268    - d/README.debian: convert into d/dpdk-doc.README.debian
269    - d/dpdk-doc.README.debian: update recommendations about sdk env variables
270    - d/dpdk-sdk-env.sh: now deployed in /usr/share/dpdk to be opt in
271    - enable XEN support for dpdk (LP: #1521289).
