For non-EAL thread, bypass per lcore cache, directly use ring pool.
It allows using rte_mempool in either EAL thread or any user pthread.
As in non-EAL thread, it directly rely on rte_ring and it's none preemptive.
It doesn't suggest to run multi-pthread/cpu which compete the rte_mempool.
It will get bad performance and has critical risk if scheduling policy is RT.
Haven't found significant performance decrease by mempool_perf_test.

   check __lcore_id with LCORE_ID_ANY instead of RTE_MAX_LCORE
