Dear release team,

We would like to move the new DPDK LTS release 17.11-2 from
experimental to unstable. This breaks the various libraries ABI compat,
so a transition is needed.


Reverse build dependency source package:


The reverse dependency builds fine with the new version of DPDK without
any source changes. Note that it currently FTBS due to a different and
unrelated build-dep [1]. Tested by disabling that other plugin and
rebuilding with the new DPDK version.

The new DPDK packages are all in experimental, having passed the NEW
queue, and have built on all supported architectures.

Note that from this release we started to follow a boost-like model, so
the ABI revision is named after the upstream major version (eg: librte-
eal3 -> librte-eal17.11). This is done because most libraries built
from DPDK break ABI compat on every single major release.


Kind regards,
Luca Boccassi
