Implement userspace networking to enhance high performance container Networking solution and Data Plane Acceleration for containers.
The Userspace CNI is a Container Network Interface (CNI) plugin designed to implement userspace networking (as opposed to kernel space networking). Examples include DPDK based applications. It is designed to run with either OVS-DPDK or VPP along with the Multus CNI plugin in Kubernetes deployments. It enhances high performance container Networking solution and Data Plane Acceleration for containers.

Installation and Usage
This plugin is recommended to be built with Go 1.11.10 and either OVS-DPDK 2.9.0-3 or VPP 19.04. Other versions of Go, OVS-DPDK and VPP are theoretically supported, but MIGHT cause unknown issue.
