Is there some recent wisdom as to how to handle the base-virtaddr parameter
for modern kernels/DPDK? I see some comments here:


About how that parameter can only be used with ASLR off. This thread seems
to confirm that you can just keep restarting with a value that works:


It would be nice to avoid that if possible. This patch also says the
secondary process value shouldn't be used:


My question is, if I can turn ASLR off, are there guidelines I should
follow on how to set that value reliably on the primary? Do the secondaries
really not need it?
