Commit Message

Lam, Tiago Oct. 10, 2018, 4:22 p.m.
Most helper functions in dp-packet assume that the data held by a
dp_packet is contiguous, and perform operations such as pointer
arithmetic under that assumption. However, with the introduction of
multi-segment mbufs, where data is non-contiguous, such assumptions are
no longer possible. Some examples of Such helper functions are
dp_packet_tail(), dp_packet_tailroom(), dp_packet_end(),
dp_packet_get_allocated() and dp_packet_at().

Thus, instead of assuming contiguous data in dp_packet, they  now
iterate over the (non-contiguous) data in mbufs to perform their
calculations.

Finally, dp_packet_use__() has also been modified to perform the
initialisation of the packet (and setting the source) before continuing
to set its size and data length, which now depends on the type of
packet.

Thanks for this Tiago,

It looks ok on inspection, will need a rebase however in the next revision.
