+ Thomas.

I've tried the checkpatch.pl from CentOS 7.4 & 7.5 and also from the latest kernel, get no warning in my
self-check with dpdk/devtools/checkpatches.sh.
I don't know what checkpatch.pl the CI uses, it depends on the DPDK_CHECKPATCH_PATH environment
variable setting. In the v5 patch, I add the __rte_experimental flag for the new API even in the vdpa.c file,
but CI still reports this warning.

BRs,
Xiao
