[dpdk-users] Looking for packet forwarding of real traffic

	I'm looking a an example of simple packet forwarding of real
traffic with DPDK.
	I have two Ethernet segments :
		Host A <-> Switch 1 <-> Host D <-> Switch 2 <-> Host B
	Host D has two ports, one in each segment.
	A and B are in the same subnet and will run ping, netperf, wget...

	If I use OVS-DPDK on Host D, it works fine. But OVS is way too
complex for what I want.
	If I use l2fwd from DPDK, it does not work. The broadcast ARP
does not make it through.

	Is there a simple example of packet forwarding that is
supposed to work ? I have no need for L2 learning or anything fancy,
just forwarding packets between the two ports.
