User level devices

User level devices

I am planning to use click with userspace I/O (uio) devices, but I have no
idea how to go around it.  Currently, I have two uio devices mapped to uio0
and uio1, and I am running click in userspace mode.  My problem is that I
am not sure how to tell click to use either of those devices (it seems that
FromUserDevice and ToUserDevice are not available in userspace mode?).  Any
pointers are appreciated -- Also, these devices are created by igb_uio,
which is a driver that comes with DPDK (Intel's dataplane development kit).

Thanks much,
