From: Pavan Nikhilesh <pbhagavatula@marvell.com>

Add `rte_eth_dev_set_supported_ptypes` function that will allow the
application to inform the PMD the packet types it is interested in.
Based on the ptypes set PMDs can optimize their Rx path.

-If application doesn’t want any ptype information it can call
`rte_eth_dev_set_supported_ptypes(ethdev_id, RTE_PTYPE_UNKNOWN)` and PMD
will set rte_mbuf::packet_type to 0.

-If application doesn’t call `rte_eth_dev_set_supported_ptypes` PMD can
return `rte_mbuf::packet_type` with `rte_eth_dev_get_supported_ptypes`.

-If application is interested only in L2/L3 layer, it can inform the PMD
to update `rte_mbuf::packet_type` with L2/L3 ptype by calling
`rte_eth_dev_set_supported_ptypes(ethdev_id,
		RTE_PTYPE_L2_MASK | RTE_PTYPE_L3_MASK)`.

The patch should add item in release notes (as well as all other
subsequent patches which add more features).

As I understand PMD may provide more reach classification
than set. So, it is not obliged to set packet type to 0.

If I remember correctly DPDK style prefers to compare vs 0.

Do we really want so strict check here? May be just check
that intersection is not empty if ptype_mask is not empty?

I think that setting ptype_mask to 0 could be pretty often and
may be it makes sense to avoid get in the case. Also consider
to return OK even if there is no get/set callbacks at all.

Should it be experimental?

Please, add it to .map file.

Yes it would be undefined.

I was thinking the same maybe we can return the successfully set mask?  
And the application can use software parser to parse the rest?.

Agreed.

I think if we are ok with the above approach i.e. returning successfully set ptypes, 
we will return 0 if there are no supported get/set call backs and the application 
can softparse the ptypes.
