> 1) What notification does DPDK provide the application or to gracefully stop the device?

A rework of hotplug is in progress:
Notifications needs to be added.

The order is "stop - close - detach":
 * Detach a Ethernet device specified by port identifier.
 * This function must be called when the device is in the
 * closed state.
