This patch add a function to support queue-pair configuration
request to allow the primary or secondary process to setup/free the
queue-pair via IPC handler. Add in queue pair in-used by process id
array in rte_cryptodev_data for pid tracking.

Signed-off-by: Kai Ji <kai.ji@intel.com>

v3:
- addin missing free function for qp_in_use_by_pid

v2:
- code rework

[CP] 
The "param" name could be improved I think - maybe follow the "res" naming and call this one "msg"
Both are "mp_***->param" so I think it is confusing to have one named "param"

[CP] 
Possible typo -   change to "qp_in_use_by_pid" to match the naming of "dev->data->qp_in_use_by_pid"

[CP] 
The above two functions should have the function return type on its own line.

Indent is off for success result

I had a comment on v1, that you should include all PMD maintainers as well
When sending any major change in library layer.
But I think you have not read the comments made on v1.

Why array? And if an array, how will its depth will be calculated.

I commented on v1, that the in_use pid can be stored inside queue private data.

It looks an incomplete patch right now.
- Documentation is missing on how this feature will be used.
- Test cases?
- PMD implementation is key part for this feature to work.

I believe it is better to defer this to next release as we don't have a clarity on how to use this.

Doxygen comments???
Writing just "Parameters for IPC" does not make any sense and it is not clear
How it will be used.

[KJ] the depth can be calculated using the max_nb_queue_pairs in dev_info. By stored this information in rte_cryptodev_data struct, we are no longer need to modify every queue private crypto PMDs,  and this pid info is not exposed to userspace neither.

[KJ] v4 updates release notes and commit message for usage of this feature.
> - Test cases?
[KJ]We have a standalone multi-process test case that I can submit but it needs some rework so it probably cant be included in the next revision. I can submit it anyway and we can do a revision of it later, after discussion. Ideally, the test app should be integrate into l2fwd test app. 
> - PMD implementation is key part for this feature to work.
[KJ] My understanding is that this design should not impact to any PMDs but offers an alternative way for secondary process to configure the queue-pair.  Its up to primary process to call the IPC request register function, otherwise no impact to any cryptodev multi-process functionalities.

[KJ] We would still like to get this feature into the release since we have a customer already using a version of this patchset. We will work to address your concerns/questions and resubmit.
