Hi,
I got same result in VMware Workstation environment.
At least in my environment, INTX toggle check is not work with VMware
E1000 Ethernet.
Please try attached patch.

INTX is badly emulated in VMWare; the disable logic doesn't work.
I thought the DPDK API detected when link state interrupt would not work.
But of course the application needs to check that before enabling link state
