The Distributor autotest can lock if ran enough times. Worker and
distributir threads get into a livelock situation waiting on each
other.
Issue first encountered by RedHat in Travis CI
https://bugs.dpdk.org/show_bug.cgi?id=316

To repeat:
`while sudo sh -c "echo 'distributor_autotest' |
		./build/app/test/dpdk-test"; do :; done`

The root cause is where we are flushing on exit, and do not wait for
all worker packets to be returned before exiting.
Add a delay on flush so that all worker packets are returned before
completing the flush.

Bugzilla ID: 316
Fixes: 775003ad2f96 ("distributor: add new burst-capable library")
