I am using DPDK in a Raspberry pi 3 machine using AF_PACKET PMD.

I have two memory pools, one for tx and other for rx.

When I set the size of memory pool as 8192, there is no problem. But 
when I increase it to 16384, mempool creation fails though more than 
800MB of RAM available.

Is this behavior because of AF_PACKET PMD? Any suggestion on how to 
increase memory pool size will be helpful.
