They should be based on dpdk-next-net/rel_16_07.
However, be aware that it is very late in the DPDK 16.07 release cycle for us
to take new content in, so please minimise the patchset to only the changes that
are absolutely necessary for you. At this stage we can only take contributions
on a best-effort basis, so having a smaller patchset will increase your chances
that the patch may be merged.
