Current code assumes a MAC change can occur when the port has been
started. In fact, there are some NICs which require this port state
for being successful, but other NICs not always support MAC change
in that case.

This patch supports a new device flag for a device advertising this
limitation, and if the flag is set, the MAC is changed before the
port starts.

+   * A new device flag, RTE_ETH_DEV_NOLIVE_MAC_ADDR, changes the order of
+     actions inside rte_eth_dev_start regarding MAC set. Some NICs do not
+     support MAC changes once the port has started and with this new device
+     flag the MAC can be properly configured in any case. This is particularly
+     important for bonding.
