109. vhost/virtio pvp multi-paths performance test plan

Benchmark PVP multi-paths performance with 10 tx/rx paths. Includes mergeable, non-mergeable, vectorized_rx, inorder mergeable, inorder non-mergeable, virtio 1.1 mergeable, virtio 1.1 non-mergeable,virtio 1.1 inorder mergeable, virtio 1.1 inorder non-mergeable, virtio1.1 vectorized path. Give 1 core for vhost and virtio respectively. Packed ring vectorized path need:

AVX512F and required extensions are supported by compiler and host VERSION_1 and IN_ORDER features are negotiated mergeable feature is not negotiated LRO offloading is disabled
Split ring vectorized rx path need:
mergeable and IN_ORDER features are not negotiated LRO, chksum and vlan strip offloadings are disabled

    --file-prefix=vhost --vdev 'net_vhost0,iface=vhost-net,queues=1,client=0' \
    -- -i --nb-cores=1 --txd=1024 --rxd=1024
    testpmd>set fwd mac
    testpmd>start
