v1 -> v2:
 - changed the flag name and behaviour from IORING_CQ_NEED_EVENT to
   IORING_CQ_EVENTFD_DISABLED [Jens]

The first patch adds the new 'cq_flags' field for the CQ ring. It
should be written by the application and read by the kernel.

The second patch adds a new IORING_CQ_EVENTFD_DISABLED flag that can be
used by the application to disable/enable eventfd notifications.

This feature can be useful if the application are using eventfd to be
notified when requests are completed, but they don't want a notification
for every request.
Of course the application can already remove the eventfd from the event
loop, but as soon as it adds the eventfd again, it will be notified,
even if it has already handled all the completed requests.

The most important use case is when the registered eventfd is used to
notify a KVM guest through irqfd and we want a mechanism to
enable/disable interrupts.

I also extended liburing API and added a test case here:
https://github.com/stefano-garzarella/liburing/tree/eventfd-disable

This patch adds the new 'cq_flags' field that should be written by
the application and read by the kernel.

This new field is available to the userspace application through
'cq_off.flags'.
We are using 4-bytes previously reserved and set to zero. This means
that if the application finds this field to zero, then the new
functionality is not supported.

In the next patch we will introduce the first flag available.

This new flag should be set/clear from the application to
disable/enable eventfd notifications when a request is completed
and queued to the CQ ring.

Before this patch, notifications were always sent if an eventfd is
registered, so IORING_CQ_EVENTFD_DISABLED is not set during the
initialization.

It will be up to the application to set the flag after initialization
if no notifications are required at the beginning.
