I agree that strings are not the way to capture this kind of information.

The reason for doing this work, is that consuming software like FD.io
VPP find it useful to provide the user the ability to display debug
information (show hardware) - including what PMD is actually doing the
work under the covers, as different PMD configurations can yield
dramatically different performance.
