Added optional ip version check to l3fwd app to allow to detect
the ip version if mbuf ol_flags are not set in case of running
in a VM with emulated network controllers

You are adding dead code. When ol_flags will be updated, it will be forget
until someone enables it.
In general, compile-time configurations are avoided and it's even worst
when this is hidden and not easily testable like here.

Agree, we already thinking about creating separate example l3fwd-vm to cover emulated network controllers.

Thanks,

Or you can try to implement some callbacks and choose the implementation
at init when detecting the environment.
