For the case that the event device scheduling packets to the workers. Though the producer
is not stopped (eth device), when the main core receive the interrupt signal, the "fdata->done"
will be set as 1. Then all the workers load the value 1 of "fdata->done" and jump out of the loop
to finish their thread.
