It should not be so far from rte_eth_fec_mode. Please, add just
after it.

May be it should be:
#define RTE_ETH_FEC_MODE_TO_CAPA(x) (1U << (RTE_ETH_FEC_ ## x))

Shouldn't RTE_ETH_FEC_MODE_TO_CAPA be used as definition
values?

The API does not allow to report capabilities per link speed:
which FEC mode is supported at which link speed?

What about something like:

struct rte_eth_fec_capa {
  uint32_t speed; /**< Link speed (see ETH_SPEED_NUM_*) */
  uint32_t capa;  /**< FEC capabilities bitmask (see RTE_FEC_CAPA_*) */
};

__rte_experimental
int rte_eth_fec_get_capability(uint16_t port_id, uint32_t *num, struct
rte_eth_fec_capa *speed_capa);

where:
 - num is in/out with a number of elements in an array
 - speed_capa is out only with per-speed capabilities

Please, specify what should be reported if link is down.
E.g. if set to RS, but link is down.

Does AUTO make sense here?

It does not allow to tweak autoneg facilities.
E.g. "I know that RS is buggy, so I want to exclude it from
auto-negotiation".
So, I suggest to change mode to capa bitmask.
If AUTO is set, other bits may be set and specify allowed
options. E.g. AUTO|RS|BASER will require FEC, i.e. NOFEC is
not allowed. If just RS, it means that auto-negotiation is
disabled and RS must be used.
If AUTO is unset, only one bit may be set in capabilities.
Since we don't do it per speed, I think it is safe to ignore
unsupported mode bits. I.e. do not return error if unsupported
capa is requested to together with AUTO, however it could be
a problem if no modes are allowed for negotiated link speed.
Thoughts are welcome.

This will be weird, as "x" should be one fec mode。examples
as follows:

rte_eth_fec_set(uint16_t port_id, enum rte_eth_fec_mode mode)
{
	struct rte_eth_dev *dev;
	uint32_t fec_mode_mask;
	int ret;

	ret = rte_eth_fec_get_capability(port_id, &fec_mode_mask);
	if (ret != 0)
		return ret;

	/*
	 * Check whether the configured mode is within the FEC capability.
	 * If not, the configured mode will not be supported.
	 */
	if (!(fec_mode_mask & RTE_ETH_FEC_MODE_TO_CAPA(mode))) {
		RTE_ETHDEV_LOG(ERR, "unsupported FEC mode = %d, port_id = %u\n",
			       mode, port_id);
		return -EINVAL;
	}

#define RTE_ETH_FEC_CAPA_BASER  (1U << RTE_ETH_FEC_BASER)
#define RTE_ETH_FEC_CAPA_RS     (1U << RTE_ETH_FEC_RS)

i.e.:
RTE_ETH_FEC_MODE_CAPA_MASK(NOFEC)
RTE_ETH_FEC_MODE_CAPA_MASK(AUTO)
RTE_ETH_FEC_MODE_CAPA_MASK(BASER)
RTE_ETH_FEC_MODE_CAPA_MASK(RS)

There is no need to report capabilities per link speed, because 
relastionship between the link speed and fec mode is fixed. The 
infomations can be referred to in official documents or internet.

A ethernet port may have various link speed in diffrent situations(for 
example, optical module with different speed is used). But we do not
care about capabilities per link speed. We only care about FEC capa of 
the ethernet device at a specific moment, because set FEC mode also 
depend on the current FEC capa.

By the way, we can also get link speed of the device by API 
"rte_eth_link_get" in the same time.

thanks.

OK, I will add the information in the function header comment:
when link down,None AUTO mode(RS, BASER. NOFEC) keep as it is when link 
up, AUTO mode will change from rs,baser to nofec when quering the mode.

The two FEC modes cannot be configured for hardware at the same time, 
including AUTO and other FEC modes. This is determined by Hardware itself.

Should an application download documents and search for it? :)

Capabilities should not be for a specific moment. Capabilities
should be fixed and stable (if transceiver is not replaced).
Capabilities should not depend on a link speed or link status.
Otherwise an application can't use it in a reliable way.

Which HW? Yours? If so, it does not matter. The patch adds
generic API. My comments are not abstract thoughts. There
are requirements and capabilities behind.

OK, I will report capabilities per link speed in V11.
By the way,

could you describe "num" more detailedly, how to use this value?

RS, BASER. NOFEC.
when link up, for example, the mode is RS. when the device is linked
down, the mode is always RS.

(2). If the current mode of device is AUTO:
when the device is linked down, the mode varies in this order:
rs->baser->nofec, until Auto-negotiation success (link shoud be
up first).

But this is defined in our hardware. I think the first feature(1) are 
common and can be adopted.

yes, it is in my HW. But I think the feature of FEC will exist in other 
HW: the two FEC modes cannot be configured for hardware at the same time.
By the way, if set two FEC mode in our HW, the result will be unknown.
I also test X710 nic device, it does not support that feature.
I do not support that solutions. thanks.

Why? if the mode is unsupported (not in capa),why we can configure
the the mode to the device? Because this is unreaonable. Also,
the configure will not be ineffective, and the hardware will return
error back to the driver.

On input, num should specify a number of elements in speed_capa
array provided by the caller to get FEC capabilities.
If the number is insufficient to, error should be returned and
the number should contain required number of elements.
If sufficient, on output driver should return a number of
filled in array elements.

Sorry, I don't understand.
What abgot if link is down and AUTO is enabled, AUTO is
returned, otherwise, configured FEC mode is returned.
If link is up, current FEC mode is returned (i.e. not AUTO,
either NOFEC, or RS, or BASER).

I'm not trying to say that two FEC modes could be running
simultaneously. I'm trying to say that in the future a PHY
could support more than one FEC mode and autonegotiation
could make a choice which FEC mode to use.
E.g.
NOFEC, FOO and BAR modes supported
set (AUTO|FOO|BAR) will require either FOO or BAR to be
negotiated and does not allow NOFEC.

I agree that requested mode should be in capabilities for at
least some speed, but not required to be applicable to
currently negotiated and running speed. May be it is obvious.
I.e. if I set AUTO|NOFEC|RS when capabilities are
25G(NOFEC,AUTO,BASER) and 100G(NOFEC,AUTO,RS), it will
enforce NOFEC for 25G (since BASER is disabled) and allow
either NOFEC or RS for 100G.

Hi, Andrew,
	I have fixed it about FEC in V11 according to your suggestion.
	could your please check it out.

	thanks.
