Thanks for the numbers!  One question that keeps coming to my mind 
is how do the cases compare on zero drop performance?

When I was experimenting with AF_XDP it seemed to be slightly more
prone to dropping packets than expected.  I wonder if you're seeing
a similar thing (well drops or back pressure to the traffic generator)?
Perhaps the single core busy poll would make a difference there?
