Bugzilla bug: 523

Using testpmd as a vhost-user with iommu:

/home/dpdk/build/app/dpdk-testpmd -l 1,3 \
	--vdev net_vhost0,iface=/tmp/vhost-user1,queues=1,iommu-support=1 \
	-- --auto-start --stats-period 5 --forward-mode=txonly

And qemu with packed virtqueue:

    <interface type='vhostuser'>
      <mac address='88:67:11:5f:dd:02'/>
      <source type='unix' path='/tmp/vhost-user1' mode='client'/>
      <model type='virtio'/>
      <driver name='vhost' rx_queue_size='1024' iommu='on' ats='on'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x07' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/>
    </interface>
...

  <qemu:commandline>
    <qemu:arg value='-set'/>
    <qemu:arg value='device.net1.packed=on'/>
  </qemu:commandline>

Is it possible to consume the iotlb's entries of the mempoo from different
threads. Thread sanitizer example output (after change rwlocks to POSIX ones):

As a consequence, the two threads can modify the same entry of the mempool.
Usually, this cause a loop in iotlb_pending_entries list.

This behavior is only observed on packed vq + virtio-net kernel driver in the
guest, so we could make the single-consumer flag optional. However, I have not
found why I cannot see the issue in split, so the safer option is to never set
it.

Any comments?

Thanks!
