Right now, vector path is limited to only use on later platform due
to the frequency penalty. This patch adds a devarg enable-latest-vec
to allow the users to use the latest vector path that the platform
supported. Namely, using AVX2 vector path on broadwell is possible.

+- ``Enable latest vector`` (default ``disable``)
+
+  AVX2 vector path cannot be chosen on platforms like HSW/BDW due to throttling
+  penalty. But users may want AVX2 vector path on HSW/BDW because it can get better
+  perf such as in VPP. So ``devargs`` parameter ``enable-latest-vec`` is introduced,
+  for example::
+    -w 84:00.0,enable-latest-vec=1

+* **Added a devarg to eable the latest vector path.**
+  A new devarg ``enable-latest-vec`` was introduced to allow users to choose
+  the latest vector path that the platform supported. For example, VPP users
+  can use AVX2 vector path on BDW/HSW to get better performance.
