This series add basic support to offload flows to Chelsio T5/T6 NICs
via rte_flow API. Chelsio NICs can support wildcard (maskfull) filters
and exact (maskless) filters. Filters can be created in two regions
available on Chelsio NICs. The smaller LE-TCAM region can support both
maskfull and maskless filters; whereas, the larger HASH region can
support only maskless filters. This series adds support for LE-TCAM
region. Support for HASH region will be added in subsequent series.

This series adds support for:
<match item>: IPv4, IPv6, TCP, and UDP.
<action>: Drop, Queue, and Count.

Support for more match items and actions will be added in subsequent
series.

Patch 1 queries firmware for available filtering resources in the
underlying device and adds table to manage these resources.

Patch 2 introduces rte_flow skeleton and implementes validate
operation.

Patch 3 exports control queue needed for communicating filter
create/delete requests with firmware.

Patch 4 adds firmware API to create filter work requests for
creating/deleting filters and implements flow create operation.

Patch 5 adds flow destroy operation.

Patch 6 adds flow query operation to get filter hit and byte counts.

Patch 7 adds flow flush operation to delete all filters under specified
port.

Thanks,
Rahul

Series applied to dpdk-next-net/master, thanks.
