Hi There,

Latest official DPDK-16.04<http://www.dpdk.org/download> has been released and we're trying to use OVS(v2.5.0) with this version DPDK. However current OVS cannot support dpdk16.04 and we hit the incompatible issue which caused OVS failed to build with dpdk16.04.

According to the failure message, corresponding code updates are also needed in OVS to support DPDK16.04. I would like to know do we have any plan to implement the fix/patch to support DPDK16.04?
