Add application inbound/outbound worker thread and
IPsec application processing code for event mode.

Exampple ipsec-secgw command in app mode:
ipsec-secgw -w 0002:02:00.0,ipsec_in_max_spi=128
-w 0002:03:00.0,ipsec_in_max_spi=128 -w 0002:0e:00.0 -w 0002:10:00.1
--log-level=8 -c 0x1 -- -P -p 0x3 -u 0x1 --config "(1,0,0),(0,0,0)"
-f aes-gcm.cfg --transfer-mode event --event-schedule-type parallel
