thanks for the reply- I figure out what it was: I was forgetting to do
   make headers_install INSTALL_HDR_PATH=/usr
from my 3.8 kernel build dir, so it was including an older linux/version.h..
After fixing that (plus booting with intel_iommu=on, and buidling kernel
with the needed CONFIG_VFIO* options), testpmd comes up correctly
with the vf.

I'll take a look at the addtional docs around testpmd that you shared,
and get back if I run into questions- thanks again for the hint.
