v2 changes:
  remove the change on vf reset status checking
  add pf event report support in release note

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:
