Prior to this patch, all port representors detected on a given device were
probed and Ethernet devices instantiated for each of them.

This patch adds support for the standard "representor" parameter, which
implies that port representors are not probed by default anymore, except
for the list provided through device arguments.

(Patch based on prior work from Yuanhan Liu)

v3 changes:

- Adapted representor detection to the reworked mlx5_dev_spawn().

v2 changes:

- Added error message for when rte_eth_devargs_parse() fails.

+- ``representor`` parameter [list]

+  This parameter can be used to instantiate DPDK Ethernet devices from
+  existing port (or VF) representors configured on the device.
+
+  It is a standard parameter whose format is described in
