No problem, I will investigate the root cause.

But before figuring out the root cause, I think we could add check in your new sample to
Check the INC_VEC is enable or not, If it is enabled, print error message and hint user 
Disable it in config file if mergeable feature is triggered in vhost. Then this issue should not 
block you from sending out your vhost app patch.

Your vhost app patch will block my another patch about multicast feature as your vhost lib patch delete the vhost sample app totally.
So expect your vhost app patch send out soon.

Thanks and regards,
Changchun

Subject: RE: [PATCH] vhost: Fix the vhost broken issue

I generated the vhost example patch based on vhost library, but find there is issue with --mergeable feature.
Only thousands of packets could be sent.
Then I tried the latest vhost example,  which is just before my vhost lib patch, I found that not only it has the issue Which is fixed by the following patch but the --mergeable feature also doesn't work.
Haven't got the change to dig into it.

Hints here:
1. mbuf allocation failure after thousands of packets.
2. disable INC_VEC(vectore scatter receive) in configure could solve this.
3. tried sending the packets directly out after receiving from vmdq queue, it works.

Could you root cause the issue, Changchun? You could work on the most recent example.
