<snip patch content>

Replying to 1st patch, as no cover letter;

Summary of patchset:
- Move tests for a specific Eventdev PMD into the PMD dir: drivers/event/x/x_selftest.c
- Enable self tests to run when passed the vdev arg "self-test=1"

A few comments on this change;

1) We should not lose the capability to run tests as part of the existing unit testing infrastructure. We should not fragment the testing tool - requiring multiple binaries to test a single component.

>From discussion on #IRC, it seems reasonable to call  rte_eal_vdev_init()  with "self-test=1" from the test/test/ code, and then we can continue to use the existing test infrastructure despite that the actual tests are now part of each PMD.

2) We should not copy/paste TEST_ASSERT macros into new test files. Abstracting the TEST_ASSERT and other macros out to a header file would solve this duplication.

Specific comments will be sent as replies to the patches. Cheers, -Harry
