The dpdk-qat example app is an earlier mechanism of wrapping a QAT driver into DPDK - it's not using the cryptodev API, and depends on both a kernel driver and user-space libs from a QAT package.
Unless you have a really good reason for using this (like you wanted to use the older Cave Creek device) I would recommend you use the cryptodev API.
The QAT PMD implementing the cryptodev API, is in drivers/crypto/qat. This supports Coleto and will support future QAT devices. It can be exercised using app/test/ and running tests like cryptodev_qat_....
Documentation on how to use it is here:

The kernel module is called icp_qa_al.ko
So lsmod | grep qa should show it.

This will only be there if using the driver built into the linux kernel since kernel 4.4.
If your kernel version is earlier than this you'll need to follow the steps at the above link for
10.4. Installation using 01.org QAT driver
10.5. Installation using kernel.org driver
It looks like you're using a mix of both set of steps.
