I have a updated pktgen with jumbo support. You need to pass the -j option to get jumbo frame support in pktgen. I have not done a lot of testing on this version. If you have time please pull the pktgen repo and switch over to the ‘dev’ branch and see if this work for you. I did not use your changes here and did it my way :-)

I did not change DPDK, as it seemed like it did not matter if RTE_MBUF_DEFAULT_DATAROOM changed. I am sure someplace may care if they used that define.
