[dpdk-dev] 82599ES NIC support

I was trying to test DPDK 1.6 with "82599ES" Intel NIC, but noticed that
DPDK does not seem to work with this NIC.  DPDK app fails because
rte_eth_dev_count() returns 0.

On the other hand, I confirmed DPDK works okay with "82599EB".

So looks like not all 82599 (ixgbe) chipsets are supported by DPDK while it
says so in http://dpdk.org/doc/nics

What is the discrepancy between 82599ES and 82599EB, which causes the
former to fail to work with DPDK?

Is it possible to fix this problem?  I'll be glad to help fix it.
