Since v0.4.0, if the underlying kernel supports it, libbpf uses 'bpf link'
to manage the programs on the interfaces of the xsks. This has two
repercussions for the PMD.

1. In the case where the PMD asks libbpf to load the default XDP program,
the PMD no longer needs to remove it on teardown. This is because bpf link
handles the unloading under the hood.
2. In the case where the PMD loads a custom program, libbpf expects this
program to be linked via bpf link prior to creating the socket.

This patch introduces probes for the libbpf version and kernel support
for bpf link and orchestrates the loading and unloading of
programs according to the capabilities of the kernel and libbpf. The
libbpf version is checked with meson and pkg-config. The probe for
kernel support mirrors how it is implemented in libbpf. A bpf_link is
created and looked up on loopback device. If successful, bpf_link will be
used for the AF_XDP netdev.

Applied to dpdk-next-net/main, thanks.
