rte_timer_subsystem_init() needs to be called in each process that wishes to create and manage timers. 

Note that secondary processes need to be using distinct lcores, as described here:
http://doc.dpdk.org/guides-19.11/prog_guide/multi_proc_support.html#multi-process-limitations

"All DPDK processes running as a single application and using shared memory must have distinct coremask/corelist arguments. It is not possible to have a primary and secondary instance, or two secondary instances, using any of the same logical cores. Attempting to do so can cause corruption of memory pool caches, among other issues."

Regards,
Erik
