Hi Maxime, 

Thanks for your comments.

I prefer Flavio's proposal, it would have less performance impact than increasing struct virtio_net size. As soon as we can see the error popping once in the log message, it gives some clues on what to investigate. Maybe providing more details on the failure could help, like printing the pool name and the requested length.

Agreed. Change in the next patch, sample format as `VHOST_DATA : Failed mbuf alloc of size 2054 from mbuf_pool_socket_0 on /tmp/vhost1.`
