The following patch series adds support for a new eventdev PMD. The DLB2
PMD adds support for the Intel Dynamic Load Balancer 2.0 (DLB2)
hardware.
The DLB2 is a PCIe device that provides load-balanced, prioritized
scheduling of core-to-core communication. The device consists of
queues and arbiters that connect producer and consumer cores, and
implements load-balanced queueing features including:
- Lock-free multi-producer/multi-consumer operation.
- Multiple priority levels for varying traffic types.
- 'Direct' traffic (i.e. multi-producer/single-consumer)
- Simple unordered load-balanced distribution.
- Atomic lock-free load balancing across multiple consumers.
- Queue element reordering feature allowing ordered load-balanced
  distribution.

The DLB2 hardware supports both load balanced and directed ports and
queues. Unlike other eventdev devices already in the repo,  not all
DLB2 ports and queues are equally capable. In particular, directed
ports are limited to a single link, and must be connected to a
directed queue. Additionally, even though LDB ports may link multiple
queues,
the number of queues that may be linked is limited by hardware.

While reviewing the code, please be aware that this PMD has full
control over the DLB2 hardware. Intel will be extending the DLB2 PMD
in the future (not as part of this first series) with a mode that we
refer to as the bifurcated PMD. The bifurcated PMD communicates with a
kernel driver to configure the device, ports, and queues, and memory
maps device MMIO so datapath operations occur purely in user-space.
Note that the DLB2 hardware is a successor of the DLB hardware, and
as such is structured similarly, both in terms of code layout and
implementation.

The framework to support both the PF PMD and bifurcated PMD exists in
this patchset, and is why the iface.[ch] layer is present.

Changes since V5:
================
- convert to use rte_power_monitor patches
- replace __builtin_ia32_movntdq() with _mm_stream_si128()
- remove unused functions in dlb_selftest.c
- workaround for RHEL 7 gcc brace bug

Changes since V4:
================
- moved introduction of dlb in relnotes_20_11 to first patch in series
- fixed underlines in dlb.rst that were too short
- note that the code still uses its private byte-encoded versions of
  umonitor/umwait, rather than the new functions in the power
  patch that are built on top of those intrinsics. This is intentional.

Changes since V3:
================
- updated MAINTAINERS file to alphabetically insert DLB
- don't create RTE_ symbols in pmd
- converted to use version.map scheme
- converted to use .._master_lcore instead of .._main_lcore
- this patch set is based on dpdk-next-eventdev

Changes since V2:
================
- fixed meson conditional build. Moved test into driver’s meson.build
  file instead of event/meson.build
- documentation is populated as associated code is introduced
- add log_register in add dynamic logging patch
- rename RTE_xxx symbol(s) as DLB2_xxx
- replaced function ptr enqueue_four with direct call to movdir64b
- remove unused port_pages
- broke up probe patch into 3 smaller patches for easier review
- changed param order of movdir64b/movntdq to match intrinsics
- added self to MAINTAINERS files
- squashed announcement of availability into last patch in series
- correct spelling errors and delete repeated words
- DPDK_21.0 -> DPDK 21 in map file
- add experimental banner to public structs and APIs

Changes since V1:
=================
- implement changes requested in code reviews by Gage Eads and Mike
  Chen
- fix a memzone leak
- convert to use eal rte-cpuflags patch from Liang Ma

Known Issues:
- the documentation contained in dlb2.rst is not complete, and
  should be updated to include command line parameters (class of service,
        etc ...).
