v3: fix Ilya's comments.

v2: fix 0-day bot issues in 2/2.

Hello Ilya,

Following your suggestion, here is a small patch adding the ability to configure the
MAC address of DPDK VF representors.  As said off-ML, I've used the options column
instead of other_configs, as it allows avoid having the DPDK representor concept
bleed out of netdev-dpdk.

There is only a small compilation fix on your first patch (rte_eth_addr type instead of
eth_addr), otherwise it is the same.

Thank you for your help and reading,
