Xia, Chenbo Jan. 14, 2021, 6:25 a.m. UTC
This patch introduces the emudev library. Emudev library is used
to abstract an emulated device, whose type could be general
(e.g., network, crypto and etc.). Several device-level APIs are
implemented to use or manipulate the device. It can be attached
to another data path driver (e.g., ethdev driver) to plug in its
high performance data path.
