Wang, Haiyue June 5, 2019, 2:29 a.m. UTC
In some scenario, if the PF's running status is stopped, the VF link
status can be detected as down by checking the mailbox status. This
fully checking will introduce mailbox interrupt in PF, and it will be
bad if many VFs are running and the application is checking the VF's
link status quickly (wait_to_complete is 0) and frequently.

Normally, checking the PF's link status is enough, no need to fully
check. For different scenarios, add 'pflink_fullchk' option to control
whether check the link fully or not.

+VF Runtime Options
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+The following ``devargs`` options can be enabled at runtime. They must
+be passed as part of EAL arguments. For example,
+
+.. code-block:: console
+
+   testpmd -w af:10.0,pflink_fullchk=1 -- -i

+- ``pflink_fullchk`` (default **0**)
+
+  Toggle behavior to get ixgbevf link status quickly by checking the
+  mailbox status or not. If set, the VF will check the PF's link status
+  and the PF's mailbox running status, which will trigger PF's mailbox
+  interrupt generation. Otherwise, just check PF's link status, then no
+  mailbox interrupt in PF.
