Introduce event vector transmit capability for event eth
tx adapter.

The capability indicates that the Tx adapter is capable of
transmitting event vectors.
When rte_event_vector::union_valid is set, the Tx adapter should
transmit all the packets to the rte_event_vector::port using the
If rte_event_vector::union_valid is not set then the Tx adapter
should peek into each mbuf to get the destination port and queue
