The lock-free stack implementation (RTE_STACK_F_LF) is supported only on a
subset of platforms, namely x86_64 and arm64. Platforms supporting 128b atomics
have to opt-in to a generic or C11 implementations. All other platforms use a
stubbed implementation for push/pop operations which are basically NOPs.
However rte_stack_create() will not fail and application can proceed assuming
it has a working lock-free stack.

This means that among other things the stack_lf fast and perf tests will fail
as if implementation is wrong (which one can argue is). Therefore this patchset
tries to give user a way to check whether a lock_free is supported or not both
at compile time (build flag) and at runtime (ENOTSUP errno in rte_stack_create).

I have added cc to stable@dpdk.org because check-git-log.sh suggested it. I'm
not sure if adding a binary compatible change to API is worth stable@dpdk.org.

Since 7911ba047 lock-free stack is supported on arm64 but this
description was missing from the doxygen for the flag.

Currently it is impossible to detect programatically whether lock-free
implementation of rte_stack is supported. One could check whether the
header guard for lock-free stubs is defined (_RTE_STACK_LF_STUBS_H_) but
that's an unstable implementation detail. Because of that currently all
lock-free ring creations silently succeed (as long as the stack header
is 16B long) which later leads to push and pop operations being NOPs.
The observable effect is that stack_lf_autotest fails on platforms not
supporting the lock-free. Instead it should just skip the lock-free test
altogether.

This commit adds a new errno value (ENOTSUP) that may be returned by
rte_stack_create() to indicate that a given combination of flags is not
supported on a current platform.
This is detected by checking a compile-time flag in the include logic in
rte_stack_lf.h which may be used by applications to check the lock-free
support at compile time.

Use the recently added RTE_STACK_LF_SUPPORTED flag to disable the
lock-free stack tests at the compile time.
Perf test doesn't fail because rte_ring_create() succeeds, however
marking this test as skipped gives a better indication of what actually
was tested.

Did you actually hit this issue or is this only theoretical?
I can only think of ppc64 displaying such behavior.

I actually hit this issue while working on a RISC-V port.
My reasoning here is that sooner or later someone else will stumble upon
this, either on ppc64 or while trying to port to some new platform.
It is also a really nasty limitation do debug given the silent nature of
the failure.

The issue was hit while porting to a new architecture.
The feature is broken in existing stable releases and it won't get
fixed by this change.

I'd rather not backport it.

Opinions?
