This series tries to implement tx batching support for vhost. This was
done by using MSG_MORE as a hint for under layer socket. The backend
(e.g tap) can then batch the packets temporarily in a list and
submit it all once the number of bacthed exceeds a limitation.

Tests shows obvious improvement on guest pktgen over over
mlx4(noqueue) on host:

                    Mpps  -+%
        rx_batched=0  0.90  +0%
        rx_batched=4  0.97  +7.8%
        rx_batched=8  0.97  +7.8%
        rx_batched=16 0.98  +8.9%
        rx_batched=32 1.03  +14.4%
        rx_batched=48 1.09  +21.1%
        rx_batched=64 1.02  +13.3%

Changes from V1:
- drop NAPI handler since we don't use NAPI now
- fix the issues that may exceeds max pending of zerocopy
- more improvement on available buffer detection
- move the limitation of batched pacekts from vhost to tuntap

Please review.
