> The rte_eth_dev_close() function now handles freeing resources for
> devices (e.g., mac_addrs).  To conform with the new close() behaviour we
> are asserting the RTE_ETH_DEV_CLOSE_REMOVE flag so that
> rte_eth_dev_close() releases all device level dynamic memory.
> Second level memory allocated to each individual rx/tx queue is now
> freed as part of the close() operation therefore making it safe for the
> rte_eth_dev_close() function to free the device private data without
> orphaning the rx/tx queue pointers.
