Write combining (WC) increases NIC performance by making better
utilization of PCI bus, but cannot be use by all PMDs.

To get internal_addr memory need to be mapped. But as memory could not be
mapped twice: with and without WC, it should be skipped for WC. [1]

To do not spoil other drivers that potentially could use internal_addr,
parameter wc_activate adds possibility to skip it for those PMDs,
that do not use it.

[1] https://www.kernel.org/doc/ols/2008/ols2008v2-pages-135-144.pdf
	section 5.3 and 5.4

Similar to previous comment, would you mind add log here when wc_activate set.
This helps user to verify/check what requested.
