Matan Azrad Jan. 28, 2020, 4:27 p.m. UTC
As an arrangment for Netlink command moving to the common library,
reduce the net/mlx5 dependencies.

Replace ethdev class command parameters.

Improve Netlink sequence number mechanism to be controlled by the
mlx5 Netlink mechanism.

Move mlx5_nl_check_switch_info to mlx5_nl.c since it is the only one
which uses it.
