This patch series adds Travis gcc compilation jobs and unit testing
for ppc64le.  Limitations for ppc64le are similar to arm64 (see commit
31bb45bcfd).

1. Only gcc builds are supported on ppc64le.
2. Hugepages are not available in the ppc64le Travis environment.
3. Memory requirements are larger for ppc64le due to a higher
   RTE_MAX_LCORE value.

V2: Insures iova-mode is VA when --no-huge is selected.
    Removed setting of --iova-mode=VA in test-null.sh.
V3: Refactor ppc64le changes on top of David Marchand's
    Patch series: "Reorganise Travis jobs"
    http://mails.dpdk.org/archives/dev/2020-February/158231.html
V4: Adding unit testing.
    Updated eal/linux: patch to force PA mode when --huge-page is used.
    This should be a more straightforward solution than my V3 patch.

A Travis build with theses patches can be found here:
