Hi Pravin,

 >> Few feature questions:
>>    - what's about the vNIC supports (toward the guests)?
>>    - what's about IPsec support (VxLAN over IPsec for instance)?
>> I do not understand how your patch will solve those 2 cases.
> At this point I wanted to get basic DPDK support in OVS, once that is
> done we can add support for vNIC.

For vNIC, did you notice:

> IPsec and vxlan or any L3 tunneling requires IP stack in userspace and
> needs more design work.

OK, understood.

>>>>> This is based a patch from Gerald Rogers.
>> Please which patch? I cannot find it into the archives.
> It was directly sent to Jesse at Nicira. If you want I can send it out for ref.

Yes, please.

Thank you,
