Have you looked at netmap? Seems like a cleaner user API for this.

That might be a bit orthogonal to this. I believe the intent it to
allow spin polling from socket calls without API change.


BTW, an interesting alternative to netmap would be to map a VF into userspace. (you would need to pre-allocate DMA memory regions and all of that RDMA-like stuff)
