Current APIs assume ring elements to be pointers. However, in many
use cases, the size can be different. Add new APIs to support
configurable ring element sizes.

+ *
+ * This function uses ``memzone_reserve()`` to allocate memory. Then it
+ * calls rte_ring_init() to initialize an empty ring.
+ *
+ * The new ring size is set to *count*, which must be a power of

+ * is *count-1* instead of *count* to differentiate a free ring from an
+ * empty ring.
+ *
+ * The ring is added in RTE_TAILQ_RING list.
+ *
+ * @param name
+ *   The name of the ring.
+ * @param esize
+ *   The size of ring element, in bytes. It must be a multiple of 4.
+ * @param count
+ *   The number of elements in the ring (must be a power of 2).
+ * @param socket_id
+ *   The *socket_id* argument is the socket identifier in case of
+ *   NUMA. The value can be *SOCKET_ID_ANY* if there is no NUMA
+ *   constraint for the reserved zone.
+ * @param flags
+ *   An OR of the following:
+ *    - RING_F_SP_ENQ: If this flag is set, the default behavior when
+ *      using ``rte_ring_enqueue()`` or ``rte_ring_enqueue_bulk()``
+ *      is "single-producer". Otherwise, it is "multi-producers".
+ *    - RING_F_SC_DEQ: If this flag is set, the default behavior when
+ *      using ``rte_ring_dequeue()`` or ``rte_ring_dequeue_bulk()``
+ *      is "single-consumer". Otherwise, it is "multi-consumers".
+ * @return
+ *   On success, the pointer to the new allocated ring. NULL on error with
+ *    rte_errno set appropriately. Possible errno values include:
+ *    - E_RTE_NO_CONFIG - function could not get pointer to rte_config structure
+ *    - E_RTE_SECONDARY - function was called from a secondary process instance
+ *    - EINVAL - esize is not a multiple of 4 or count provided is not a
+ *		 power of 2.
+ *    - ENOSPC - the maximum number of memzones has already been allocated
+ *    - EEXIST - a memzone with the same name already exists
+ *    - ENOMEM - no appropriate memory area found in which to create memzone
