Other compiler stuff in rte_common.h are starting with __rte in small
letter(__rte_packed, __rte_unused) etc.
I think, a better name would be __rte_loop_auto_vectorize or so.
No strong opinion for the name though.

# Probably it is worth checking and add performance result of x86
testing in git commit as well as it
is common code.
