Sorry to bother again, could you give suggestions/hints of code change to
support single 40G port? Because in our setup, we will use single 40G port
(Intel XL710) as the network interface.
Or is there any workaround to bypass the limitation?(we are not willing to use

Yes, your understanding is correct, currently the port rate in bytes per second
needs to be represented as 32-bit number.
So, we can currently do single port with 10GbE and 25GbE rate, but not single
port of 40GbE or 100GbE. Please note that we can do 40GbE as 4 ports of 10GbE
each, which is a very common configuration for 40GbE.
This limitation is not trivial to remove, i.e. more code is needed to remove
this limitation than just changing the rate data type to uint64_t.
Thanks for your feedback. Good to know that we should upgrade this library to
support 40GbE rates sooner rather than later.
