  This patchset introduces a new EAL API for querying devices,
filtered by arbitrary properties.

The following elements are introduced to this end:

 * A new object, "rte_class", is used to describe
   the device class abstraction layer (eth, crypto, ...).

 * Both rte_bus and rte_class now offer a way to
   list their devices and filter the result
   using locally defined properties.

 * The rte_dev API now has an rte_dev_iterator, which
   is the way for the user to define the device filter
   and iterate upon the resulting set.

As an example, the "eth" device class is implemented.

Additionally, the device filters for

  + rte_bus_pci
  + rte_bus_vdev
  + rte_class_eth

are implemented and can be used with some
properties each, to show how to extend those.

Some example of filters:




  * Reworked the dev_iterate callback to simplify
    its implementation.

    Now dev_iterate implementation do not need to learn
    about the intricacies of the rte_dev_iterator.
    The rte_dev_iterator is managed purely by the
    rte_dev_iterator_next function. Buses and classes then
    do not have to care about settings things right.

    Additionally, dev_iterate implementations do not
    have to sanitize their dev string anymore, they
    are prepared by the rte_dev layer prior, which also
    reduces the number of dynamic allocations.


  * Introduced central constructor priority list.
  * Removed lightweight kvarg parsing utility,
    using librte_kvargs instead.
  * Reversed dependencies of librte_kvargs and
  * Fixed a few bugs.
  * @Bruce: I have noted the request for meson support.
    I will install it and attempt it once the bulk of the work is done.


  * Fixed a few bugs, added relevant acks,
    fixed some typos.
  * Made each matching functions actually check for a proper
    list of accepted properties.
  * rte_kvargs now includes rte_eal directly and keeps rte_log.
  * added generic string comparison function to rte_kvargs,
    as some kind of comparison should probably be shared by many layers.


  * Rebased on master
  * Use strcspn instead of custom function.
  * Introduce private generic rte_eth_dev iterator.
    This could be generalized to other iterators
    (port_next, owner_id-aware, etc).
  * Attempted to support meson.build.
    Got lost in the implicit variables declared
    when inversing dependencies between kvargs and EAL.
    Removed anything related to meson.
  * Postponed genericization of work from
    device query to device declaration.
    Much bigger than anticipated, will let this
    part get in first and iterate over it.


  * Rebased on master
  * Introduce RTE_PRIORITY_LAST, to explicitly set
    the lowest constructor priority.
  * Fix copyright notice for eth_privage.* files.


  * Rebased on master
  * Fix rte_kvargs_strcmp return value.
  * Fix layer parsing error
    devstr "bus=pci/onemorelayer" now tells
    that the additional layer is not recognized.


  * Rebased on master
  * Cleaned kvargs use: introduced
    a new parser function, that simplifies
    using the library for DPDK devargs.
  * Refactored devargs parsing in a single
    function within rte_devargs.
    This function is useful both for rte_dev
    parsing its iterator, and for rte_devargs
    parsing --dev parameters (not yet implemented).
  * A few small bugfixes.
