Here are two little changes to be able to run testpmd as non-root with
virtio ports in a guest.
This requires a functional vIOMMU (the main pain parts being writing a
Q35 machine configuration in qemu for x86 guests).

No major change since the RFC, I just did not find the time to describe
the full setup (Q35 x86 machine config + permissions on /dev/hugepages
and /dev/vfio in the guest + ulimit -l unlimited).
