I don't see the answer to this in the documentation, so I'll try here. Why
function does the coremask that's required in rte_eal_init() actually do
other than tell the API what cores you're using? In other words, can't I
just set the core mask to all of the cores in my system, and selectively
use the ones I want? Is there a downside to that? What if the particular
thread running on an lcore isn't doing any DPDK functions?
