Hi Liang

I don't think that overriding the value passed to pci_map_resource as argument is the way to go. While it results in less code, it looks weird, in my opinion at least, as I believe tracking the correctness of address being requested should be the responsibility of the caller, i.e. either UIO or VFIO code. Which is why I keep insisting that you make requested_pci_addr global to linuxapp EAL PCI section and put it into include/eal_pci_init.h. Would you mind if I made a patch for this issue based on your code?

Subject: [PATCH] eal: map PCI memory resources after hugepages

A multiple process DPDK application must mmap hugepages and pci resources into same virtual addresses. By default the virtual addresses chosen by the primary process automatically when calling the mmap. But sometime the chosen virtual addresses isn't usable at secondary process. Such as the secondary process linked with more libraries than primary process. The library has been mapped into this virtual address. The command line parameter 'base-virtaddr' has been added for this situation. If it's configured, the hugepages will be mapped into this base address. But the virtual address of pci resources mapped still does not refer to the parameter. In that case "EAL: pci_map_resource(): cannot mmap" 
will be got.

This patch try to map pci resources after hugepages. So the error can be resolved by set base-virtaddr into free virtual address space.
