Control interface APIs added into the sample application.

To have the support corresponding kernel module (KCP) needs to be inserted.
If kernel module is not there, application will run as it is without
kernel control path support.

When KCP module inserted, running application creates a virtual Linux
network interface (dpdk$) per DPDK port. This interface can be used by
traditional Linux tools.

v3:
* Use blocking mode control interface processing, instead of poll mode

v2:
* No update on sample app

+Control Interface
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+If Kernel Control Path (KCP) kernel module (rte_kcp.ko) inserted,
+virtual interfaces created for each DPDK port for control purposes.
+
+Created interfaces are named as dpdk#, like:
+
+.. code-block:: console
+
+        # ifconfig dpdk0; ifconfig dpdk1
+        dpdk0: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
+                ether 90:e2:ba:0e:49:b9  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)

+                RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
+                TX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
+                TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0
