Message: dpif-lookup: add avx512 gather implementation

This commit adds an AVX-512 dpcls lookup implementation.
It uses the AVX-512 SIMD ISA to perform multiple miniflow
operations in parallel.

To run this implementation, the "avx512f" and "bmi2" ISAs are
required. These ISA checks are performed at runtime while
probing the subtable implementation. If a CPU does not provide
both "avx512f" and "bmi2", then this code does not execute.

The avx512 code is built as a seperate static library, with added
CFLAGS to enable the required ISA features. By building only this
static library with avx512 enabled, it is ensured that the main OVS
core library is *not* using avx512, and that OVS continues to run
as before on CPUs that do not support avx512.

The approach taken in this implementation is to use the
gather instruction to access the packet miniflow, allowing
any miniflow blocks to be loaded into an AVX-512 register.
This maximises the usefulness of the register, and hence this
implementation handles any subtable with up to miniflow 8 bits.

Note that specialization of these avx512 lookup routines
still provides performance value, as the hashing of the
resulting data is performed in scalar code, and compile-time
loop unrolling occurs when specialized to miniflow bits.
