The lock sh->txpp.mutex was not correctly released on one path
of cleanup function return, potentially causing the deadlock.

Is this 'RTE_SET_USED()' need to be used multiple times for same variable?

This usage looks ugly, I can see why it is used but I wonder if this can
be solved differently, what about something like following:

  #ifdef RTE_LIBRTE_MLX5_DEBUG
   #define MLX5_ASSERT(exp) RTE_VERIFY(exp)
  #else
   #ifdef RTE_ENABLE_ASSERT
    #define MLX5_ASSERT(exp) RTE_ASSERT(exp)
   #else
    #define MLX5_ASSERT(exp) RTE_SET_USED(exp)
   #endif
  #endif

mmm, It seems "claim_zero()" macro would be better here:

claim_zero(pthread_mutex_lock(&sh->txpp.mutex));

I will provide the cleanup patch, thank you for noticing that

It would directly replace MLX5_ASSERT(exp) with RTE_SET_USED(exp)
if there is neither RTE_ENABLE_ASSERT nor RTE_LIBRTE_MLX5_DEBUG.
We would not like to drop the "not used" check functionality at all , right?

With best regards,

The suggestion was to prevent following kind of usage:
  	MLX5_ASSERT(!ret);
  	RTE_SET_USED(ret);

I assume you need above usage when a variable is used only in the 'MLX5_ASSERT',
if there is a way to prevent warning in that case without 'RTE_SET_USED' that
may be better.
