Hi Thomas,

It's a very good suggestion. Let's implement "rte_malloc_is_ready()" which could be as
simple as " rte_eal_get_configuration()->mem_config->magic == RTE_MAGIC" check.
There may be more consumers for this API in future.

If we are making it automatic detection, shall we now even have argument to this alloc API?
I added a flags argument (32 bit) in latest series where each bit of this flag can be an allocation capability.
I used two bits for discriminating between glibc malloc and rte_malloc. Shall we keep it or drop it?

David, Dmitry please share your thoughts.

Thanks
Harman
