A new DPDK release candidate is ready for testing:

Except some fixes, there are more features in drivers, a new bnx2x driver
and the introduction of the interrupt mode which was pending for a long time.
Having such features in a RC2 is unusual and must be unrepeatable.
>From now, only important fixes and cleanups will be accepted.

Please test it and check the documentation.

		* interrupt mode
