[dpdk-dev] [PATCH 0/2] pci: allow to run without hotplug

The default behavior of DPDK is to wait the creation of /dev/uioX
devices. This work is usually done by hotplug thanks to the
kernel notification.

On some embedded systems, there is no hotplug program. These 2
patches introduce a new EAL option "--create-uio-dev" that tells
the DPDK to create the /dev/uioX devices using mknod().

Olivier Matz (2):
  pci: split the function providing uio device and mappings
  pci: add option --create-uio-dev to run without hotplug
