[ovs-dev] OVS (master) + DPDK(17.11) + multi-queue

I am using above configuration on my testbed and when I try to add a port
which is bound to igb_uio, I see following errors due to Tx queue
configuration. I just want to use single Tx and Rx queue for my testing. I
looked at Documentation/intro/install/dpdk.rst, i see only "DPDK Physical
Port Rx Queues" and nothing for "Tx Queues". Kindly let me know how can I
use single tx/rx queues and if I have to use multiple Tx queues what
configuration changes I need to do?
