A new DPDK release candidate is ready for testing:

What's new in RC2?
	- service cores API
	- traffic management API (QoS)
	- lock-free Tx queue capability API
	- failsafe driver

The release notes have been updated:

It was a bit long too long to make this second release candidate.
Hopefully it is in a good shape and there won't be too many issues
for the third one. We should make RC3 in less than a week.
The next release candidate is expected to include only some
bug fixes, tooling, packaging or documentation updates.

The patchwork backlog has been cleaned a lot by moving some features
as deferred until the beginning of the 17.11 release cycle.
Please check what is remaining.

Thank you everyone
