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

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.

	section 5.3 and 5.4
