From: Vamsi Attunuru <vattunuru@marvell.com>

When KNI operates in IOVA = VA mode, it requires mbuf memory
to be physically contiguous to ensure KNI kernel module could
translate IOVA addresses properly. Patch adds a KNI specific
mempool create routine to populate the KNI packet mbuf pool
with memory objects that are being on a page.

KNI applications need to use this mempool create & free routines
so that mbuf related requirements in IOVA = VA mode are handled
inside those routines based on the enabled mode.

Updated the release notes with these new routine details.

    =========================================================
 
+* kni: ``rte_kni_pktmbuf_pool_create`` ``rte_kni_pktmbuf_pool_free`` functions
+  were introduced for KNI applications for creating & freeing packet pool.
+  Since IOVA=VA mode was added in KNI, packet pool's mbuf memory should be
+  physically contiguous for the KNI kernel module to work in IOVA=VA mode,
+  this requirement was taken care in the kni packet pool creation fucntions.
