EAL:   probe driver: 8086:10fb rte_ixgbe_pmd

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

This is introduced by commit: 46bc9d75
	ixgbe: fix multi-process support
When start primary process with command line:
./app/test/test -n 1 -c ffff -m 64
then start the second one:
./app/test/test -n 1 --proc-type=secondary --file-prefix=rte
This segment-fault will occur.

Root cause is test app on primary process only starts device, but
the queue need initialized by manually command line.
So the tx queue is still NULL when secondary process startup.

I'm just not sure if it is better to terminated when Tx queues are NULL
in secondary process.

Thanks

Well, in case of test app, it does not need any ports, so it should work anyway.
Probably it does not make much sense to run two test processes in general,
although it is used in multiprocess unit test.

So, I would say that app should not terminate.

No, don't terminate. Printing a message is enough.

Maybe shorten message to: "No TX queues configured yet. Using default TX function."
