Ruifeng Wang June 10, 2021, 6:57 a.m. UTC
Number of rx queue and number of rx port in lcore config are constants
during the period of l3 forward application running. But compiler has
no this information.

Copied values from lcore config to local variables and used the local
variables for iteration. Compiler can see that the local variables are
not changed, so qconf reloads at each iteration can be eliminated.

The change showed 1.8% performance uplift in single core, single port,
single queue test on N1SDP platform with MLX5 NIC.
