A multiple process DPDK application must mmap hugepages and pci resource into same virtual addresses. By default the virtual addresses chosen by the primary process automatically when calling the mmap. But sometime the virtual addresses chosen by the primary process isn't usable at secondary process. Such as the secondary process linked with more libraries than primary process. The library has been mapped into this virtual address. The command line parameter 'base-virtaddr' has been added for this situation. If it's configured, the hugepages will be mapped into this base address. But the virtual address of uio resource mapped still does not refer to the parameter. In that case it would still fail.

This patch try to map uio resources after hugepages when the base_virtaddr is configured. So the error of "EAL: pci_map_resource(): cannot mmap" can be resolved by set base-virtaddr into free virtual address space.

Could you perhaps take anatoly's suggestion and modify this patch so the checking
for a space right after the memsegs does not just depend on base-virtaddr being
set. Unless it causes other problems, there is no reason this code should not
always be used.
