Hi Ömer,

I've a few comments:

This could be "num_workers = rte_lcore_count() - (3 + 
enable_lcore_rx_distributor)"

Also, if you don't like the magic number, you could add a #define 
FIXED_FUNCTION_CORES 3 at the top of the file and use here.

I'd suggest removing this line and setting the initial value in the 
declaration above. I would also suggest defaulting it to true.

This could be "num_workers = rte_lcore_count() - (4 - 
enable_lcore_rx_distributor)".

the two checks above could be replaced with something like:

min_cores = 4 + enable_lcore_rx_distributor;
if (rte_lcore_count() < min_cores)
                 rte_exit(EXIT_FAILURE, "Error, This application needs at "
                                 "least %d logical cores to run:\n"
                                 "1 lcore for stats (can be core 0)\n"
                                 "1 lcore for packet RX\n"
                                 "1 lcore for distribution\n"
                                 "1 lcore for packet TX\n"
                                 "and at least 1 lcore for worker 
threads\n",
                                 min_cores);
