Comment 23 for bug 1546565

trying to clarify the complex situation regarding submitting this to Debian.

1. DPDK is not yet available in Debian. The to be packaged version is based on Ubuntu packaging and will have this fix.
2. Openvswitch as in Debian atm is not yet DPDK compatible (at 2.3 and would need to be >=2.5). Thereby the patch makes no sense for Debian (yet)

Once these are available in Debian it makes sense to submit to reduce delta.
Well actually we don't derive openvswitch from debian so it is no debian delta - still it would be nice to stay in sync.
