While it is worth clarifying whether the fake mbuf
in virtnet_rx struct is really necessary, it is sure
that it heavily impacts cache usage by being part of
the struct. Indeed, it uses two cachelines, and
requires alignment on a cacheline.

Before this series, it means it took 120 bytes in
virtnet_rx struct:

struct virtnet_rx {
	struct virtqueue *         vq;                   /*     0     8 */

	/* XXX 56 bytes hole, try to pack */

	/* --- cacheline 1 boundary (64 bytes) --- */
	struct rte_mbuf            fake_mbuf __attribute__((__aligned__(64))); /*    64   128 */
	/* --- cacheline 3 boundary (192 bytes) --- */

This patch allocates it using malloc in order to optimize
virtnet_rx cache usage and so virtqueue cache usage.

I just notice that the macro 'RTE_PMD_VIRTIO_RX_MAX_BURST' and 'RTE_VIRTIO_VPMD_RX_BURST'
should always have the same value, so maybe better to make them into one macro later?
