Description

In cloud and virtualized environments, virtio-pmd is generally used to receive packets.
This can enable usage of Suricata in conjunction with e.g. DPDK Open vSwitch.

Hasn't been mentioned directly in the PR 8680 but after the PR there should be support available for this feature on the best-effort level. It was working for me on 1 queue but I had issues getting it to work with multiple queues.
I've tested both virtio-net (Virtualbox) and virtio-user (Qemu) backends.
