[dpdk-dev] [PATCH 0/2] next-build: add test app to build

This patchset adds the test/test/test app to the Meson build.
In doing so, the test app is improved to allow running a unit
test by setting an environment variable. This allows the meson
test infrastructure to integrate with the DPDK tests. Some nice
improvements from the above integration, including debug aids...

Run all autotests:
$ meson test

Run a specific test:
$ meson test ring_perf_autotest

Run a specific test multiple times, eg brute-forcing race conditions:
$ meson test eventdev_sw_autotest --repeat=3

Run a specific test multiple times in gdb, eg to drop to GDB if race found:
$ meson test eventdev_sw_autotest --repeat=3 --gdb

Meson also provides various options to "wrap" the test binary,
which can be used for running in eg: Valgrind or other tools. For
more information about Meson and its testing capabilities, see here:

Cheers, -Harry
