Agree with above haiyue said, and go through the discuss on the thread, 
i think vector path was born definitely for the spirit of dpdk, each 
driver could keep the performance base on

the instinct requirement and define what is the specific "max", the path 
option could give to app, it could static choose one when set up queue 
or dynamic but not the driver scope,

document could be add to AVI if need for benefit user.
