The DPDK howto has slowly morphed into a catch all for everything DPDK, which goes against the original design goal for 'howto' documents [*]. This series attempts to return some sanity to the universe by splitting this document into many more 'topic' documents. Along the way, we add a lot of semantic markup, rework some text, and add an overview on 'dpdk'-type ports (the original goal here).
There's a good chance I've made some mistakes in the process and I've left TODOs for someone to resolve now or at a future date. I welcome feedback on both of these. Now to go back to figure how exactly NUMA affinity works for and affects PMD threads... [*] 'howto' documents are supposed to be brief, high-level overviews on a particular group of features, with a focus on the user. They're not as all-encompassing as a 'tutorial', but not as specific as a 'topic'.
