If this is the case, use this for setting control thread affinity instead
of deducing it from the existing core pinning of the process.

I am unconvinced on adding an EAL option for this.
It needs an explanation on why you can't rely on the dpdk process
current affinity for control threads.
And we will need a unit test.

Please rebase your patch on master too.

Hi David,
This task was supposed to be taken up by someone else in my organisation. Will check and update.

Thanks
