I haven't added it yet, because as of the moment I do not have an access to
the built DPDK library I was using.  I was just linking it with my DPDK

I tried to debug it with GDB and disassembled it, the invalid instruction
was "vzeroupper" which occurs at rte_eal_init, somewhere when initializing

Ok, I'll to debug more and get more information.

Thanks again,

To stop learning is like to stop loving.
