  To: dev; +Cc: Maxime Coquelin

The driver should notify the guest for each traffic burst detected by CQ
polling.

The CQ polling trigger is defined by `event_mode` device argument,
either by busy polling on all the CQs or by blocked call to HW
completion event using DevX channel.

Also, the polling event modes can move to blocked call when the
traffic rate is low.

The current blocked call uses the EAL interrupt API suffering a lot
of overhead in the API management and serve all the drivers and
libraries using only single thread.

Use blocking FD of the DevX channel in order to do blocked call
directly by the DevX channel FD mechanism.

Sorry it cannot be pulled in the main tree because it breaks
compilation with musl libc.

It can be fixed in the same way as in
41b5a7a8494e ("vdpa/mlx5: replace pthread functions unavailable in musl")
The function pthread_attr_setaffinity_np() must be replaced with
pthread_setaffinity_np() if moved after the call to pthread_create().

We could add a checkpatch check for forbidden functions like
	pthread_yield, pthread_attr_setaffinity_np
and forbidden includes:
	<error.h>, <sys/fcntl.h>
