Added changes to receive packets as event vector. By default this is
disabled and can be enabled using the option --enable-vector. Vector
size and timeout to form the vector can be configured using options
--vector-size and --vector-tmo-ns.

Example:
	dpdk-l3fwd -l 0-3 -n 4 -- -p 0x03 --mode=eventdev \
	--eventq-sched=ordered --enable-vector --vector-size 16

Depends-on: series=18322 (eventdev: simplify Rx adapter event vector config)

v2:
* Fixed setting event vector attribute.

> +* ``--enable-vector:`` Optional, Enable event vectorization. Only valid if --mode=eventdev.

As for the IPsec example, the option name --event-vector
would be more appropriate because "vector" can refer to something else.

> +

> +
> +* ``--vector-tmo-ns:`` Optional, Max timeout to form vector in nanoseconds if event vectorization is enabled.

Better to have a common prefix "event" for all three options.
