Change the type of burst mode information from bit field to free string
data, so that each PMD can describe the Rx/Tx busrt functions flexibly.

v3: - Fix one doxygen issue.

v2: - http://patchwork.dpdk.org/patch/62368/
    - Drop the bit field for burst mode information handling.

v1: - http://patchwork.dpdk.org/patch/62289/
    - http://patchwork.dpdk.org/patch/62290/
    - http://patchwork.dpdk.org/patch/62291/
