New stable version of LibE1000 3.0 has been released

LibE1000 is a user-space library for Intel Gigabit Ethernet adapters. It implements an "OS bypass" mechanism,
where fast path processing and rx/tx data transfers are done without kernel assistance (i.e. no system calls).
This method reduces SW overhead of the data transfers to virtually zero. The library is useful for hard realtime,
and high performance application with strict low latency and overhead requirements.

New version includes several important improvements. New standalone kernel module eliminates the need for patching
in-kernel E1000 driver. Flexible device binding via UDEV rules simplifies configuration. The library can now share
DMA buffers between different instances.

This release has been thoroughly tested in performance critical production environment.
