[dpdk-dev] hardware neutral driver for DPDK

Hey there-
	I'm interested in doing some work on the DPDK, specifically in creating
a driver backend that interfaces to the kernel using AF_PACKET rather than a
specific card for which a UIO or VFIO driver is available in kernel.  I think it
would be nice for the DPDK to have a hardware agnostic driver for development
purposes.  Before I begin I wanted to make sure that something like this hasn't
already been done. I don't see any clear reference to one in the git repo, but I
figured I'd ask just to be sure there wasn't some external project in the works

Thanks & Regards
