Add support for port reset in rte layer.This reset
feature can not only used in vf port reset in later code
develop, but alsopf port.But in this patch set, we only
limit the discussion scope to vf reset.
This patch Add an API to restart the device.
It's for VF device in this scenario, kernel PF + DPDK VF.
When the PF port down->up, APP should call this API to
restart VF port. Most likely, APP should call it in its
management thread and guarantee the thread safe. It means
APP should stop the rx/tx and the device, then restart
the device, then recover the device and rx/tx.
Also, it's APP's responsibilty to release the occupied
memory.
