[dpdk-dev] overcommitting CPUs

Hi, has there been any consideration to introduce a non-spinning network driver (interrupt based), for the purpose of overcommitting CPUs in a virtualized environment?  This would obviously have reduced high-end performance but would allow for increased guest density (sharing of physical CPUs) on a host.

I am interested in adding support for this kind of operation, is there any interest in the community?
