From: Kozik <rk@semihalf.com>

Write combining (WC) increases NIC performance by making better
utilization of PCI bus, but cannot be used by all PMDs.

It will be enabled only if RTE_PCI_DRV_WC_ACTIVATE will be set in
drivers flags. For proper work also igb_uio driver must be loaded with
wc_activate set to 1.

When mapping PCI resources, firstly check if it supports WC
and try to use it.
In case of failure, it will fall-back to normal mode.
