This patch adds unit test for the mbufs allocated from
the special pool with pinned external data buffers.

The pinned buffer mbufs are tested in the same way as
regular ones with taking into account some specifics
of cloning/attaching.

verify_mbuf_check_panics() is left commented out to test the patch
(verify_mbuf_check_panics() fails on my setup), will be removed in v2.

With best regards, Slava

Looks good to me, you can add my ack in the v2, once we understand
the issue with verify_mbuf_check_panics().

Note: on my platform, it still works if I remove this comment.

Olivier, thanks for the reviewing.
I'll remove the comment and send the v2.
I use 1G huge pages, will retest over 2M
and continue finding why my host fails.

With best regards, Slava

I checked with 2M huge pages - fork() works OK on my host, does not work over 1G.
RH7.2/3.10.327. Will try other kernels.
