As we may know, we have eal event for rte device hotplug and ethdev event
for ethdev hotplug. Some ethdev need to use eal event to detect hotplug
behaviors, the privors way is register eal event callback in app, but seems
that it will have some race between these 2 event processes. In oder to fix
the it, it might be better to find a way to combind these 2 events detect.
This patch set introduce a way to combind these 2 event, by register the
ethdev eal event callback in ether dev and trigger the ethdev hotplug event
in the callback. That will let the ethdev device can easy process hotplug
by a common way.
Here let i40e/ixgbe pmd driver for example, other driver which support
hotplug feature could be use this way to detect and process hotplug.
refine some code style and typo
change to use device event handler install api
remove the callback from driver to ethdev for common.
add ixgbe hotplug detect case.
refine some doc.
