​ixv.c does not contain the netmap hooks though it might be
relatively straightforward to add them, possibly reusing
the same netmap hooks and support functions used in ixgbe.c

As a matter of fact, there seems to be a large amount
of duplicated code between ixv.c and ixgbe.c,
so i wonder whether it makes sense to remove the duplication and
use just a single copy of the common parts ?
