NEC released a PMD and a Linux driver for virtual machines.
It is based on memory copy.

It is available at:

The shared memory must be created first in the host.
Then it can be configured as a virtual device in QEMU thanks to ivshmem.
This new virtual NIC will be usable into a DPDK application or with any Linux 
distribution which can load memnic.ko.

Using this API, there can be various implementations on the host side:
	- OVDK has native mapping of that memory
	- memnic-host-sim (will be provided soon)
	- DPDK PMD (to be done)
	- etc...

The PMD driver can be dynamically loaded:
	testpmd [..] -d librte_pmd_memnic_copy.so [..]

For non-DPDK application, the Linux kernel driver can be loaded:
	insmod memnic.ko

More information and documentation are available into:
	http://dpdk.org/doc/memnic-pmd (HTML version)

Thanks to NEC. Enjoy
