This bug was fixed in the package dpdk - 2.2.0-0ubuntu9

dpdk (2.2.0-0ubuntu9) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * d/p/ubuntu-backport-[36-37] fix virtio issues (LP: #1570195):
    - don't let DPDK initialize virtio devices still in use by the kernel
    - this avoids conflicts between kernel and dpdk usage of those devices
    - an admin now has to unbind/bind devices as on physical hardware
    - this is in the dpdk 16.04 release and delta can then be dropped
    - d/dpdk-doc.README.Debian update for changes in virtio-pci handling
    - d/dpdk.interfaces update for changes in virtio-pci handling
  * d/p/ubuntu-backport-38... fix for memory leak (LP: #1570466):
    - call vhost_destroy_device on removing vhost user ports to fix memory leak
    - this likely is in the dpdk 16.07 release and delta can then be dropped
  * d/p/ubuntu-fix-vhost-user-socket-permission.patch fox (LP: #1546565):
    - when vhost_user sockets are created they are owner:group of the process
    - the DPDK api to create those has no way to specify owner:group
    - to fix that without breaking the API and potential workaround code in
      consumers of the library like openvswitch 2.6 for example. This patch
      adds an EAL commandline option to specify user:group created vhost_user
      sockets should have.
