Hi,
I have observed that the dpdk-devbind.py is an interactive tool and
not quite useful for automated testing in CI/CD. We are planning to
create “dpdk-usertools-server” for making it streamlined.
The idea is to create a separate application, which provides REST interface to:
    - Query the current status of devices and drivers
    - Bind and unbind devices to different drivers

Future extensions will be to make dpdk-pmdinfo.py, cpu_layout.py and
dpdk-setup.sh more automation friendly.
