lacp: fix regarding vm arg for vlib_time_now calls

Use thread-specific vlib_main_t *vm pointers to avoid problems with
different threads accessing the same vlib_main_t data structure.
This avoids assertion failure when vlib_time_now() is called with a vm
corresponding to a different thread.

bonding: Add /if/lacp/<bond-sw_if_index>/<slave-sw_if_index>/partner-state

We already had /if/lacp/<bond-sw_if_index>/<slave-sw_if_index>/state in
the stats segment. Add also the partner-state to be complete.
Change to populate stats segment with the states at startup, after processing
an lacp pdu, and after timer expiration.

Unit test
sudo vpp_get_stats dump | grep /if/lacp
63.00 /if/lacp/3/1/state
61.00 /if/lacp/3/1/partner-state
63.00 /if/lacp/3/2/state

bonding lacp: deleting virtual interface which was enslaved may cause crash

Virtual interfaces may be part of the bonding like physical interfaces. The
difference is virtual interfaces may disappear dynamically. As an example,
the following CLI sequence may crash the debug image

create vhost-user socket /tmp/sock1
create bond mode lacp
bond add BondEthernet0 VirtualEthernet0/0/0
delete vhost-user VirtualEhernet0/0/0

Notice the virtual interface is deleted without first doing bond delete.
The proper order is to first remove the slave interface from the bond prior
to deleting the virtual interface as shown below. But we should handle it

create vhost-user socket /tmp/sock1
create bond mode lacp
bond add BondEthernet0 VirtualEthernet0/0/0
bond del VirtualEthernet0/0/0 <-----
delete vhost-user VirtualEhernet0/0/0

The fix is to register for VNET_SW_INTERFACE_ADD_DEL_FUNCTION and remove
the slave interface from the bond if the to-be-deleted interface is part of
the bond. We check the interface that it is actually up before we send
the lacp pdu. Up means both hw and sw admin up.

lacp: create lacp-process on demand

Create lacp-process when the very first slave interface is added to the bond.
Log an event message when lacp-process starts/stops.
Be mindful when lacp-process is signalled to stop.

lacp: passive mode support [VPP-1551]

By definition, passive mode means the node does not start sending lacp pdu until
it first hears from the partner or remote.

- Rename ptx machine's BEGIN state to NO_PERIODIC state.
- Put periodic machine in NO_PERIDOIC state when the interface is enabled for
lacp. ptx machine will transition out of NO_PERIODIC state when the local node
hears from the remote or when the local node is configured for active mode.
- Also add send and receive statistics for debugging.

lacp: issue with slave interface admin up after it is added to the bond group

When the slave interface is admin up after it is added to the bond group,
lacp does not send lacp pdu's to the interface because its periodic timer
is not running.

The issue was the slave interface's variables got reset after the state
machines were initialized.

lacp: deleting the bond subinterface may cause lacp to lose the partner [VPP-1251]

When the bond subinterface is removed, it was observed that we lost the lacp
partner. Show hardware shows rx counter goes up, but show interface does not
for the slave interfaces.

We reset the interface promiscuous mode when the bond subinterface is deleted.
This causes dpdk not to accept any packet. Leave the interface in promiscuous
mode fixes the problem.

Other fixes:
There are few places we use hw_if_index as if they are sw_if_index. But they
don't necessarily have the same value. As soon as a subinterface is created,
they start to diverge. The fix is to use the correct API for the hw_if_index
and sw_if_index.

lacp: faster convergence for slow-rate config option

Do fast-rate if we are not yet synchronized with the partner.

Stop sending LACP updates as a flash in the worker thread. Just expire the
timer and let the lacp_process handle sending LACP PDU.

bond: Add bonding driver and LACP protocol

Add bonding driver to support creation of bond interface which composes of
multiple slave interfaces. The slave interfaces could be physical interfaces,
or just any virtual interfaces. For example, memif interfaces.

The syntax to create a bond interface is
create bond mode <lacp | xor | acitve-backup | broadcast | round-robin>

To enslave an interface to the bond interface,
enslave interface TenGigabitEthernet6/0/0 to BondEthernet0

Please see src/plugins/lacp/lacp_doc.md for more examples and additional

LACP is a control plane protocol which manages and monitors the status of
the slave interfaces. The protocol is part of 802.3ad standard. This patch
implements LACPv1. LACPv2 is not supported.
To enable LACP on the bond interface, specify "mode lacp" when the bond
interface is created. The syntax to enslave a slave interface is the same as
other bonding modes.
