Is there any limit on the number of threads that can function on a 
single interface with af-packet+workers+mmap?  In particular, in a 
64-core system with a single ethernet interface, if the af-packet 
threads option is set to 64 on the interface, will it be able to create 
64 threads, all of which read and process packets from that interface?
