doc: add readme file
This project is missing a proper README which is used in other projects and some git visualization services. Only a starting point, please feel free to edit. To keep the file short and current, I avoided putting any specific information about features and versions. Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <> Acked-by: John McNamara <>
