Packet processing in secondary process cannot work because rx_pkt_burst
and tx_pkt_burst in eth_dev are not initialized while probing device.
This patch is to the initialization.

But this seems the issue for other virtual PMDs too, @Yasufumi, can you please
check others too if you have any bandwidth for it?


I assume this is missing for a long time because there is not easy way to test
them in secondary process, testpmd doesn't support the multi process. cc'ed
testpmd and multi process maintainers, what do you think about adding multi
process support to testpmd?


I tested with "examples/multi_process/symmetric_mp" sample app, it required
fixing with null pmd:
1- Requested offload config was not supported by null pmd
2- promics_enable dev_ops was not implemented in null pmd

We should fix sample app / virtual pmds too so they can work together...

    Fixes: ee27edbe0c10 ("drivers/net: share vdev data to secondary process")
    Cc: stable@dpdk.org

Applied to dpdk-next-net/master, thanks.

Yes. I have also tried to fix other PMDs, and would like to make some 
updates for vhost and virtio next if possible.
