A, or D. Depending on things such as, "If you run the DPDK on Random Platform 
X," where X could be something like Power CPUs or other weird stuff, will all 
of the things needed for the Combined Lib 1) be compilable, 2) be able to load 
w/o errors.

For example, I could see probe ctor functions from various PMD's blowing up on 
unsupported hardware. Like how the rte_pmd_virtio had issues when I tried it 
on my VM system.

If we think we can make sure no platform specific stuff breaks when it ends up 
in Combined Lib A then A is probably the easiest for all.

Matthew.
