> > From: Reshma Pattan <reshma.pattan at intel.com>
> > A new sample app that shows the usage of the distributor library. This
> > app works as follows:
> > * An RX thread runs which pulls packets from each ethernet port in turn
> > and passes those packets to worker using a distributor component.
> > * The workers take the packets in turn, and determine the output port
> > for those packets using basic l2forwarding doing an xor on the source
> > port id.
> > * The RX thread takes the returned packets from the workers and enqueue
> > those packets into an rte_ring structure.
> > * A TX thread pulls the packets off the rte_ring structure and then
> > sends each packet out the output port specified previously by the worker
> > * Command-line option support provided only for portmask.
> > v5 change:
> > * Handled gracefull shutdown of rx and tx threads upon SIGINT.
> > v6 change:
> > * modified graceful shutdown logic to handle all threads upon SIGINT
> > * removed call to rte_eal_pci_probe()
> > * added seperate print_stats function
> > v7 change:
> > * passing NULL as rxconf/txconf parameter for rx/tx queue setup
> > * removed zero-ed fields from port conf structure
> > * fixed style related comments

Before applying this patch, I have 2 comments:
- Other examples directories don't have _app suffix.
- checkpatch reports "switch and case should be at the same indent"
If you agree I will fix these 2 minor issues before applying.
