This results in negetive impact on the\ninsertion performance.\n    \nLooking forward there are going to be a need to support many more tunnel\nencapsulations. For example MPLSoGRE, MPLSoUDP.\nAdding the new encapsulation will result in duplication of code.\nFor example the code for handling NVGRE and VXLAN are exactly the same,\nand each new tunnel will have the same exact structure.\n    \nThis series introduce a generic encapsulation for L2 tunnel types, and\ngeneric encapsulation for L3 tunnel types. In addtion the new\nencapsulations commands are using raw buffer inorder to save the\nconverstion time, both for the application and the PMD.\n\n[1]https://mails.dpdk.org/archives/dev/2018-August/109944.html\n\nOri Kam (3):\n  ethdev: add generic L2/L3 tunnel encapsulation actions\n  ethdev: convert testpmd encap commands to new API\n  ethdev: remove vxlan and nvgre encapsulation commands\n\n app/test-pmd/cmdline_flow.c        | 294 +++++++++++++++++--------------------\n doc/guides/prog_guide/rte_flow.rst | 105 +++++--------\n lib/librte_ethdev/rte_flow.h       |  66 ++++++---\n 3 files changed, 219 insertions(+), 246 deletions(-)"
