The related kernel function is:
- pci_num_vf, it is introduced from upstream linux-2.6.34. For RHEL-based
kernel, it is defined from RHEL5.9.

- kstrtoul, this function is united kernel API to replace strict_strtoul in
the furture. It is introduced from linux-2.6.39. For RHEL6, it is defined
from RHEL6.4.

This patchset do some compatiblity work for these two functions, and
replace strict_strtoul which is depleted from linux-3.18.

Some test results for dpdk-1.8.0-rc3 with this patchset:
1. In RHEL7 GA: Build success after specify -mssse3 to CFLAGS,
```
CC ixgbe_rxtx_vec.o
In file included from /root/dpdk-source/lib/librte_pmd_ixgbe/ixgbe_rxtx_vec.c:41:0:
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.8.2/include/tmmintrin.h:31:3: error: #error "SSSE3 instruction set not enabled"
# error "SSSE3 instruction set not enabled"
```
  - for igb_uio, pass
  - for kni, pass
  - for xen_dom0, pass


2. In RHEL6.5 : Build fails for kni, and xen_dom0:
  - for igb_uio: pass
  - for kni: fail, the log is:
```

```
  - for xen_dom0: fail, seems xen is not offical supported in RHEL6.

v4:
  Indent for patches.
  Include compat.h for kni_vhost.c

v3:
  Adjust pci_num_vf() introduced RHEL version number.
  Seperate "replace strict_strtoul with kstrtoul" into 3 patches for igb_uio,
kni, and xen_dom0. Add compat.h in kni and xen_dom0 for compatible with
older kernels.

v2:
  Merge these two patch in one patchset.
  Compatible with old kernel for kstrtoul.
  Compatible with RHEL6 for pci_num_vf.


Jincheng Miao (4):
  igb_uio: compatible with upstream longterm kernel and RHEL
  igb_uio: replace strict_strtoul with kstrtoul
  kni: replace strict_strtoul with kstrtoul
  xen_dom0: replace strict_strtoul with kstrtoul
