[dpdk-dev] [PATCH 42/44] event/octeontx2: add devargs to limit timer adapters

From: Pavan Nikhilesh <pbhagavatula at marvell.com>

Add devargs to limit the max number of TIM rings reserved on probe.
Since, TIM rings are HW resources we can avoid starving other
applications by not grabbing all the rings.
Example:

	--dev "0002:0e:00.0,tim_rings_lmt=2"
