The Testpmd can't switch forward engine on runtime. When it is forwarding packets, the standing operating procedures should be: 1. testpmd> set fwd mac 2. testpmd> stop 3. testpmd> start We can add a patch to document this standing operating procedure. Or we can refactor the set_pkt_forwarding_mode API to support this feature.
