I haven't reviewed the patch, but recall that the Mempool library sets up caches per lcore using hardcoded loops going from 0 to RTE_MAX_LCORE, regardless how many lcores are present and assigned to DPDK.

Making rte_max_lcore dynamic (and possibly auto-detected by the EAL) instead of defined at compile time might also be an improvement for systems with fewer cores than RTE_MAX_LCORE. But there are probably a lot of considerations regarding multi-process applications.
