AF_XDP support is deprecated in libbpf since v0.7.0 [1]. The
libxdp library now provides the functionality which once was in
libbpf and which the AF_XDP PMD relies on. This commit updates the
AF_XDP meson build to use the libxdp library if available. If it
is not available, only versions of libbpf prior to v0.7.0 are
allowed, as they still contain the required AF_XDP functionality.

libbpf still remains a dependency even if libxdp is present, as we
use libbpf APIs for program loading.

 This is a Linux-specific PMD, thus the following prerequisites apply:
 
 *  A Linux Kernel (version > v4.18) with XDP sockets configuration enabled;
-*  libbpf (within kernel version > v5.1-rc4) with latest af_xdp support installed,
-   User can install libbpf via `make install_lib` && `make install_headers` in
-   <kernel src tree>/tools/lib/bpf;
+*  Both libxdp and libbpf libraries installed, or, libbpf <=v0.6.0
 *  A Kernel bound interface to attach to;
 *  For need_wakeup feature, it requires kernel version later than v5.3-rc1;
 *  For PMD zero copy, it requires kernel version later than v5.4-rc1;
