dpdk: Support dpdk vhost-user client mode
Support of vhost-user client mode has been added for both OVS and VPP. VSPERF configures vhost-user server mode in vswitches by default for backward compatibility. Support of vhost-user server mode is deprecated in OVS and it can be removed in future releases. Once it will happen, we have to change vsperf default behavior to usage of vhost-user client ports at vswitch side. This patch also fixes processing of boolean configuration parameters passed via --test-params option. In the past it was not possible to set boolean value to False through --test-params option.
