[dpdk-users] only one vdev net_af_xdp being recognized

Hi,

I am trying to understand net_af_xdp, and find that dpdk is recognizing
only one vdev net_af_xdp, hence only one port (port 0) is getting
configured. Requesting help to know if I am missing any information on
net_af_xdp support in dpdk, or if I have provided the EAL parameters wrong.
Kindly advice.

I am running Fedora 30.1-2 as Guest VM on Virtual Box VM Manager with Linux
Kernel 5.1.0, and dpdk-19.05. The interfaces are emulated ones mentioned
below,

DPDK testpmd is executed as mentioned below,
