Hi Aaron,

I try to solve this by avoiding exposing this new API.
Hope this works.

BRs,

I think there's something wrong with this patch - I see the following error after all the patches are applied:

   drivers/a715181@@tmp_rte_pmd_ifc at sta/net_ifc_ifcvf_vdpa.c.o: In function `ifcvf_set_vring_state':
   ifcvf_vdpa.c:(.text+0x1157): undefined reference to `rte_vhost_get_active_vring_num'

Looking at the linker line, I see that librte_vhost is being included.

Is it possible that you need to make an export for this?

Travis build:

   https://travis-ci.com/ovsrobot/dpdk/jobs/231687745

Possibly, this is because the robot needs to call the right script to apply to a -next tree.  I'd be a little surprised, though.
