On DPDK head commit (917229) I have a simple program creating two TXQs each
sending 15000 IPV4 UDP packets.

As far as I can see there are no errors anymore. I have looked. I burst TX
them in blocks of 15; rte_eth_tx_burst always returns 15.

The lcores are launched with rte_eal_mp_remote_launch, and main() blocks
until rte_eal_mp_wait_lcore() returns.

However, at any time after rte_eal_mp_wait_lcore returns showing the number
of out packets as per rte_eth_stats_get or xstats per rte_eth_xstats_get I
see two things:

- the reported number of queued packets per TXQ is always 15000
- the number of out packets or "good packets" is close to 15000*2 but never
30000

It appears like the TXQs still have work in-queue even after the lcore's
thread returns and rte_eal_mp_wait_lcore returns. I've tried to
rte_eth_tx_done_cleanup and/or rte_eth_dev_tx_queue_stop before I get the
stats. That doesn't seem to help.

The TXQ config is default except for checksum offloads:

000000.336378246 DEBUG reinvent_dpdk_initaws.cpp:1341 TXQ conf:
{"tx_thresh": { "pthresh": 0, "hthresh": 0, "wthresh": 0 }, "tx_rs_thresh":
0, "tx_free_thresh": 0, "tx_deferred_start": 0, "tx_offloads": 00008006, }

Is this expected behavior? I've look through code; I haven't seen clear
signs of a TXQ oriented lcore flushed or waiting for the output queue to be
actually written onto the wire before exiting.
