I am trying to debug a problem:

I am running testpmd in a VM.

The stack trace is below.

Running uio_pci_generic. kvm-qemu 2.5.3, Centos 7
CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core)

Problem can be reproduced using either igb_uio or virtio_pci kernel drivers.

Currently running 3.18.35 kernel but problem can be reproduced with 3.10 
kernel shipped with Centos.

Problem originally was scene with 16.04. Now reproduced from top of 
master commit, 34d279906d588e349f3e69020a94d7f932bdf099

Currently running qemu/kvm 2.3: qemu-kvm-ev-2.3.0-31.el7_2.10.1.x86_64

Thanks for helping with more eyes on this problem. I am at OPNFV and 
this problem is currently holding up nfv deployment.
