Hi Keith,

For me the build failed with clang but I made a series of awful patches to get 
it to compile... not sure if the clang failures could be related to your 
scan-build failures. If it will help you I can provide you the patches I made 
to get it to work on clang... they are not ready for the DPDK master branch 
but it's really good to get safe output from scan-build.

Not 100% true... you can run Coverity for free on open source if you are the 
maintainer... given Intel, Wind River, and 6WIND all have some form of 
maintainership authority over DPDK there should be a way to qualify via this
