If DPDK is used on VF while the host is using Linux Kernel driver
as PF driver on FVL NIC, some setting on PF will trigger VF reset.
DPDK VF need to know the event.
This patch set makes the interrupt based request of PF reset from PF
supported by enabling the adminq event process in VF driver.
Users can register a callback for this interrupt event to get
informed, when a PF reset request detected like:
