Since the AF_XDP PMD does not work for secondary processes as reported
in Bugzilla 805, check for the process type at the beginning of probe
and return ENOTSUP if the process type is secondary.

It is planned that secondary processes will be supported by the PMD in
full in a future release by using rte_mp_msg to pass the state to the
secondary process that it requires in order to work.

Bugzilla ID: 805
Fixes: f1debd77efaf ("net/af_xdp: introduce AF_XDP PMD")
