There is MPSC case used by pfifo_fast, it make more sense to use a separate selftest
for ptr_ring as ptr_ring has been used by various subsystems.

Actually that is what I do in this patch, move the specific part related to ptr_ring
to ptr_ring_test.h. When the virtio testing is refactored to work, it can reuse the
abstract layer in ptr_ring_test.h too.
