[AMD Official Use Only - Internal Distribution Only]

Thanks Thomas for bringing this up.
I consider this is not a new feature, but rather a fix to address the issue with statically assigned maximum lcore limit on high-density CPU platform such as AMD Epyc.
As I see a lot of DPDK adopters are still using LTS 18.11 & 19.11, and they have 1~2 yrs of lifetime left, we like to backport this to LTS 18.11 & 19.11 at least.

This patch was merged in 20.02.
We don't have any feedback about issues so it's probably working fine.

It is solving a problem for running DPDK on machines having a lot of cores.
Now the difficult question: is it a new feature or a fix?
Should we backport this patchset?
