From: Jozef Martiniak <jozmarti@cisco.com>

when running single-core, some drivers tend to call rte_delay_us for a
long time, and that is causing packet drops.
Attached patch introduces 2 new functions:

void rte_delay_us_callback_register(void(*userfunc)(unsigned));
void rte_delay_us_callback_unregister(void);

First one replaces rte_delay_us with userfunc and second one restores
original rte_delay_us.
Test user_delay_us is included.

Hi Jozef,

I have two quick comments inline.

I guess I would have used the rte_delay_us_callback_register(NULL) to unregister, but this is fine.

Just a note we need to add these two new APIs to the map file for ABI checking.

Other then these two comments I would give this one a +1 unless someone else has some comments.

I think we could avoid the function unregister by exporting the
default implementation (let's say rte_delay_us_block).

Thanks for providing an unit test.

Why not always call the registered callback and initialize it
to the default implementation (maybe using a constructor)?

I think register/unregister is the standard way how to handle callbacks. Unregister func is now "empty" but can be extended in the future.

I wanted to touch as few things as possible with this patch.
