Is this a recent change that a new application need to be discussed in techboard
first? I see that test-sad was added without discussion in the techboard.

I see this application as a useful tool to test the readiness of a driver to be used
in a multi process environment. If app is not a correct place to host it, should it be
added in examples/multi_process/. I also suggested that in v2 but it makes more 
sense in app as it is a unit test application which does not have any relevance as
standalone application as crypto may not be used standalone without ethernet
for multi process scenario.
My first preference was to modify l2fwd-crypto to be used as a multi process proof
Application but it also make sense to have a unit test application to verify standalone
crypto PMDs.
Open for comments from other crypto PMD owners.

Regards,
Akhil
