This patch set adds support for Intel NTB device with Skylake platform.
It is a raw device for allowing two hosts to communicate with each other
and access the peer memory.

This patch set also provides a simple example to transmit a file between
two hosts. But since there is no FIFO here, only support file which is
no more than 4M. And will add FIFO in the future.

v8:
* Fixed a coding style issue.
* Rebased codes to the newwst master branch.

v7:
* Fixed a typo.
* Generic spad registers to be spad_user and the specific spad is
* defined by the specific hw.
* Refined the codes by replacing with lib functions such as rte_read32.
* Rebased the codes to the newest dpdk-next-net-intel branch.

v6:
* Fixed a typo.

v5:
* Actual v4. v4 patchset is the same as v3.

v4:
* Fix compile issues of comparison of array with null pointer.

v3:
* Fixed compilation issues with target i686.
* Renamed communication devices to misc devices in usertool.
* Rebased to the newest dpdk-next-net-intel branch.

v2:
* Replaced ! with NULL check for pointers.
* Added ntb_ops valid check before use it.
* Replaced RTE_MEMZONE_1GB with RTE_MEMZONE_IOVA_CONTIG in case users do
  not use 1G hugepage.
* Added a timeout for dev_stop handshake in case that the peer stopped
  abnormally such as crashed while debugging.
* Updated docs especailly about how to setup BIOS for skylake.
* Fixed not return issue and not free issue in example.
* Renamed ntb_devices to communication_devices to be more generic in
  usertools.
* Polish the codes and docs.
