[dpdk-users] Query: decouple the driver and library components

I am new to DPDK. I had been looking at the i40e driver implementation of
DPDK. I see that the code is entirely revamped as compared to the original

My query is that is it possible for me to use this i40e driver(in dpdk
source code package) without other non-essential dependencies or in plain
words, can I decouple these components ? I am more interested in the
pollmode driver. My concern was on the jitter introduced by regular
drivers. I did modify the original i40e driver for this, but things did not
work out as I wanted to.

I understand that this driver package depends on various other libraries
that are bundled with the source code. So, could I decouple these
components ( for example; the libraries and the driver module) ?

Any information on this would be very helpful.
