[ovs-dev] [PATCH dpdk-latest] dpdk: Migrate to the new pdump API.

DPDK commit 660098d61f57 ("pdump: use generic multi-process channel")
switched pdump to use generic DPDK IPC instead of sockets.
Old API was deprecated and removed.  Updating OVS code accordingly.

Signed-off-by: Ilya Maximets <i.maximets at ovn.org>

Compile tested only.

BTW, does anybode uses this functionality?
I mean, the conventional way for dumping packets in OVS is to use
ovs-tcpdump that works via traffic mirroring.  I guess, pdump
could be used for some lower level debuging, but I never used it.
