[Hemant]  I thought, I was clear in my documentation. 
" This libray provides direct ioctl based interfaces for FMAN configuration as used by the FMC tool  as well"
FMD always exist in the kernel for DPAA.  At present FMC is using it via IOCTL calls and FMC is indepdent tools with limitations for DPDK.
Now, we have directly used those ioctl calls via fmlib in DPDK.

[Hemant] FMD is already part of DPAA supported kernels.
