This kernel module is based on KNI module, but this one is stripped
version of it and only for data messages, no control functionality
provided.

FIFO implementation of the KNI is kept exact same, but ethtool related
code removed and virtual network management related code simplified.

This module contains kernel support to create network devices and
this module has a simple driver for virtual network device, the driver
simply puts/gets packets to/from FIFO instead of real hardware.

FIFO is created owned by userspace application, which is for this case
KDP PMD.

In long term this patch intends to replace the KNI and KNI will be
depreciated.

Jerin Jacob has patch for cleaning of MACRO RTE_CACHE_LINE_SIZE and 
having CONFIG_RTE_CACHE_LINE_SIZE

in config file. You may need to remove this,once those changes are 
available in code.

     You are not using ol_flags down in the code. Should this be removed?

Does all structures should have "__rte_cache_aligned" in their 
declarations? Like other DPDK structs?

     Is it good to haveKERN_DEBUG "KDP:Debug: " like Errors?

     you can add header for all function declarations inside header file 
with below format. Same for other header files and functions.

     *@Description

     *@params

     *@Return value

     Should this be warning/ERR instead of PRINT?

      Empty function body?
