 * concurrent access to it. It has the following features:
 *
 * - FIFO (First In First Out)
 * - Maximum size is fixed; the pointers are stored in a table.
 * - Lockless implementation.
 * - Multi- or single-consumer dequeue.
 * - Multi- or single-producer enqueue.
 * - Bulk dequeue.
 * - Bulk enqueue.
 * - Ability to select different sync modes for producer/consumer.
 * - Dequeue start/finish (depending on consumer sync modes).
 * - Enqueue start/finish (depending on producer sync mode).
 *
 * Note: the ring implementation is not preemptible. Refer to Programmer's
 * guide/Environment Abstraction Layer/Multiple pthread/Known Issues/rte_ring
