The existing definition of rte_epoll_wait retries if interrupted
by a signal. This behavior makes it hard to use rte_epoll_wait
for applications that want to use signals do do things like
exit polling loop and shutdown.

Since changing existing semantic might break applications, add
a new rte_epoll_wait_interruptible() function that does the
same thing as rte_epoll_wait but will return -1 and errno of EINTR
if it receives a signal.

This patch has been sitting unreviewed, uncommented, and unmerged for
two releases. It seems only patches from HW vendors get the attention.

Hi Stephen,
	Looks good overall, few nits inline.

Can you rebase with the master? It will help me apply this cleanly.

It would be good to mention the units here, but might add complexities depending on the functionality supported by the underlying OS.

I guess it is a personal choice. I personally prefer using goto for error handling.
