Greetings, I cannot get OpenVSwitch to add my DPDK-bound VFIO port (e1000 DPDK-compatible NIC) to the bridge without an error.

The error is at the end, and I am supplying all of the info I know the community would typically ask me for, before I show the error at the bottom.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hardware:  Model: Dell Precision T-1700

Our DPDK-compatible NICs (p2p1 and p2p2 when not overridden with vfio) have been properly bound to DPDK.

These are the devices not bound to DPDK, em1, p1p1 and p1p2.

OpenVSwitch initialized with dpdk (init=true), and our socket parms (1 Hugepage), and I even set a mdp-cpu-mask to 0x8 to ensure that I am using CPU core of 3 in the array [0,1,2,3].

# ovs-vsctl add-br br-testdpdk -- set bridge br-testdpdk datapath_type=netdev

We add a bridge in OpenVSwitch. No issue with this.

# ovs-vsctl add-port br-testdpdk p2p1 -- set Interface p2p1 type=dpdk options:dpdk-devargs=0000:01:00.0
ovs-vsctl: Error detected while setting up 'p2p1': Error attaching device '0000:01:00.0' to DPDK.  See ovs-vswitchd log for details.
ovs-vsctl: The default log directory is "/var/log/openvswitch".

Adding the PCI 0000:01:00.0 (p2p1) to the bridge fails.
Also tried adding 0000:01:00.1 (p2p2) which also fails identical way.

Looking on the web for an answer to this, has not provided me any results. Everything up to this point looked just fine.
NOTE: I did a full yum update on the box, uninstalled openvswitch, and re-installed openvswitch.
NOTE: I did *not* do a custom build of DPDK or OpenVSwitch. I used yum to install dpdk, dpdk-tools, and openvswitch.
