Applied to dpdk-next-net/rel_16_07

On apply I got conflicts with the nic overview document, so please check the
resulting information in that document is correct in the next-net tree.
I also added a very short entry to the release notes for this new driver as
part of patch 1, since that was missing. Please also check that for correctness
and send on any additional comments/corrections you want on that.

Thanks for all the work on this driver.
