Hi All,
FOREACH_DEVICE_ON_VMBUS needs rte_vmbus_bus to work on
If static link to libdpdk.a : no issues
If dynamic link to *.so: linker issue, global variable not found.

I suggest this patch to get a current rte_vmbus_bus struct:
Thanks.

Not sure I really get your usecase, but this probably is a linking
issue on your side.

The global variable is not accessible from libdpdk.so
I don't really see how the linker can find it in this case.
