Burakov, Anatoly June 15, 2018, 2:25 p.m. UTC
Previously, we were using two IPC threads - one to handle messages
and synchronous requests, and another to handle asynchronous requests.
To handle replies for an async request, rte_mp_handle woke up the
rte_mp_handle_async thread to process through pthread_cond variable.

Change it to handle asynchronous messages within the main IPC thread.
To handle timeout events, for each async request which is sent,
we set an alarm for it. If its reply is received before timeout,
we will cancel the alarm when we handle the reply; otherwise,
alarm will invoke the async_reply_handle() as the alarm callback.
