Some of the NICs supported by DPDK have a possibility to accelerate TCP
traffic by using segmentation offload. The application prepares a packet
with valid TCP header with size up to 64K and deleguates the
segmentation to the NIC.

Implement the generic part of TCP segmentation offload in rte_mbuf. It
introduces 2 new fields in rte_mbuf: l4_len (length of L4 header in bytes)
and tso_segsz (MSS of packets).

To delegate the TCP segmentation to the hardware, the user has to:

- set the PKT_TX_TCP_SEG flag in mbuf->ol_flags (this flag implies
  PKT_TX_TCP_CKSUM)
- set the flag PKT_TX_IPV4 or PKT_TX_IPV6
- set PKT_TX_IP_CKSUM if it's IPv4, and set the IP checksum to 0 in
  the packet
- fill the mbuf offload information: l2_len, l3_len, l4_len, tso_segsz
- calculate the pseudo header checksum without taking ip_len in account,
  and set it in the TCP header, for instance by using
  rte_ipv4_phdr_cksum(ip_hdr, ol_flags)

The API is inspired from ixgbe hardware (the next commit adds the
support for ixgbe), but it seems generic enough to be used for other
hw/drivers in the future.

This commit also reworks the way l2_len and l3_len are used in igb
and ixgbe drivers as the l2_l3_len is not available anymore in mbuf.
