I am relatively new to dpdk. I could make the examples work.

Now I am experimenting with a traffic measurement application which capture
packets using dpdk. The application requires few other threads apart from
the rte_threads.
If I put the code for thread creation (pthread_create()) before calling
eal_rte_init and remote_launch, the rte_init/remote launch is not
proceeding. But if I put the eal_rte_init()/remote_launch first it is
working, but coee will wait there and would not proceed to the subsequent

How to do it correctly?
