[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v3 1/2] ethdev: Introduce if_index field to struct rte_eth_dev_info

From: Mats Liljegren <mats.liljegren at enea.com>

This field is intended for pcap to describe the name of the interface
as known to Linux. It is an interface index, but can be translated into
an interface name using if_indextoname() function.

When using pcap, interrupt affinity becomes important, and this field
gives the application a chance to ensure that interrupt affinity is set
to the lcore handling the device.
