  Previously, unit tests were running in groups. There were technical
reasons why that was the case (mostly having to do with limiting memory),
but it was hard to maintain and update the autotest script.
In 18.05, limiting of memory at DPDK startup was no longer necessary,
as DPDK allocates memory at runtime as needed. This has the implication
that the old test grouping can now be retired and replaced with a more
sensible way of running unit tests (using multiprocessing pool of workers
and a queue of tests). This patchset accomplishes exactly that.

This patchset merges changes done in [1], [2]
