Apologies I'm late to the conversation.

Will the rte_eal_primary_proc_alive() function still detect the primary
as alive, and not confuse secondaries with primaries in this new method?

Currently, the pri_proc_alive() code uses lockf(fd, F_TEST, 0); to detect
if a primary is alive. I'm not familiar enough with shared locks to know 
if the new behavior would be consistent with the old.
