[ovs-dev] [PATCH v11 03/14] dp-packet: Fix allocated size on DPDK init.

> When enabled with DPDK OvS deals with two types of packets, the ones
> coming from the mempool and the ones locally created by OvS - which are
> copied to mempool mbufs before output. In the latter, the space is
> allocated from the system, while in the former the mbufs are allocated
> from a mempool, which takes care of initialising them appropriately.
> 
> In the current implementation, during mempool's initialisation of mbufs,
> dp_packet_set_allocated() is called from dp_packet_init_dpdk() without
> considering that the allocated space, in the case of multi-segment mbufs,
> might be greater than a single mbuf.  Furthermore, given that
> dp_packet_init_dpdk() is on the code path that's called upon mempool's
> initialisation, a call to dp_packet_set_allocated() is redundant, since
> mempool takes care of initialising it.
> 
> To fix this, dp_packet_set_allocated() is no longer called after
> initialisation of a mempool, only in dp_packet_init__(), which is still
> called by OvS when initialising locally created packets.

Thanks for this Tiago, 1 minor comment below.

Although not visible in the patch here, the comment for dp_packet_init_dpdk() still makes reference to ''allocated'.
As 'allocated' is removed the comment should be reworked also to reflect it also.
