Nice to join DPDK community.

read from DPDK system requirements for Linux

  Kernel version >= 2.6.34

I'd like to know if there is any reason to block DPDK build and run on
older kernel version, i.e. 2.6.32, as carried on CentOS 6. where

Could we just keep our CentOS 6 64bit x86_64 OS and continuing running
32bit applications with DPDK injected.

or, there are good reasons *must* upgrade to CentOS 7, where
kernel=3.10.0, gcc=4.8, and re-build applications to 64bit as well?

Thanks a lot!
