Hi, as an example of where I am having trouble with shared libraries, I am
trying to modify the "helloworld" example program so that I can invoke it
as: "helloworld --vdev net_null0". Working by looking at the low-level
dpdk-20.11 driver code, I tried adding a call to "rte_vdev_init()" to the
helloworld main.c as shown in the code diffs below. When I tried to
build (as shared), I got an error from the loader saying the reference
to 'rte_vdev_init' is undefined.

Am I even barking up the right tree?
