[dpdk-dev] [PATCH 0/3] Add developer mode to DPDK build

To allow more flexibility in enabling additional build checks to DPDK build
process, we can add a developer mode option to the build. With this option
enabled, extra checks of interest to DPDK developers rather than users can be
done on the code, without having to worry about possible user impacts. The new
option can be manually enabled or disabled by using meson configure, but by
default is set to "auto" which means it is enabled if building from a git repo.

Once the developer mode is added in the first patch, the other patches of this
series turn off a number of previous features for non-developer builds, since
those features would only be of interest to DPDK devs.

Bruce Richardson (3):
  build: enable a developer mode setting
  build: hide debug messages in non-developer mode
  build: limit symbol checks to developer mode
