I am in the midst of a debug of DPDK for a different card type so I can't
say for sure and I am not expert but, the testpmd looks fine. And the
disappearing ports is to be expected and would be replaced during use
(testpmd is a driver test only). You need something riding on top of it
like in our case OVS+DPDK which later creates a dpdk0 port. I think you are
on the right track but you are early in the process.

Best Regards,
Don
