Just to  add instead of having if and else using a jumptbl would be much cleaner
Ex.
	const pipeline_atq_worker_t pipeline_atq_worker_single_stage[2][2][2] = {
		[0][0] = pipeline_atq_worker_single_stage_fwd,
		[0][1] = pipeline_atq_worker_single_stage_tx,
		[1][0] = pipeline_atq_worker_single_stage_burst_fwd,
		[1][1] = pipeline_atq_worker_single_stage_burst_tx,
	};

		return (pipeline_atq_worker_single_stage[burst][internal_port])(arg);
