Currently meter algorithms only supports rate is bytes per second(BPS).
Add packet_mode flag in meter profile parameters data structure.
So that it can meter traffic by packet per second.

When packet_mode is 0, the profile rates and bucket sizes are
specified in bytes per second and bytes
when packet_mode is not 0, the profile rates and bucket sizes are
specified in packets and packets per second.

Add the necessary checks to the existing drivers implementing
the rte_mtr API to makes sure that profiles with
packet_mode set to TRUE are rejected.
