Extended xstats API in ethdev library to allow grouping of stats logically
so they can be retrieved per logical grouping  managed by the application.
Changed existing functions rte_eth_xstats_get_names and rte_eth_xstats_get
to use a new list of arguments: array of ids and array of values.
ABI versioning mechanism was used to support backward compatibility.
Introduced two new functions rte_eth_xstats_get_all and
rte_eth_xstats_get_names_all which keeps functionality of the previous
ones (respectively rte_eth_xstats_get and rte_eth_xstats_get_names)
but use new API inside. Both functions marked as deprecated. 
Introduced new function: rte_eth_xstats_get_id_by_name to retrieve
xstats ids by its names.
Extended functionality of proc_info application:
--xstats-name NAME: to display single xstat value by NAME
Updated test-pmd application to use new API.

v5 changes:
* fix clang shared build compilation
* remove wrong versioning macros
* Makefile LIBABIVER 6 change 

v4 changes:
* documentation change after API modification
* fix xstats display for PMD without _by_ids() functions
* fix ABI validator errors

v3 changes:
* checkpatch fixes
* removed malloc bug in ethdev
* add new command to proc_info and IDs parsing
* merged testpmd and proc_info patch with library patch
