No, I appreciate your effort for contributing to DPDK! vhost-pmd stuff
is just brilliant!

I'm wondering could we have one solution only. IMO, the drawback of
having two (quite different) solutions might outweighs the benefit
it takes. Say, it might just confuse user.

OTOH, I'm wondering could you adapt to Jianfeng's solution? If not,
what's the missing parts, and could we fix it? I'm thinking having
one unified solution will keep ours energy/focus on one thing, making
it better and better! Having two just splits the energy; it also
introduces extra burden for maintaining.
