Bing Zhao March 24, 2020, 3:33 p.m. UTC
Common structures used for mlx5 flow creating and destroying are
reorganized in order to separating the parts only for destroying
from all the items.
The "mlx5_flow" will contain the common items of DV and Verbs flow,
specific items for DV / Verbs only. These items will only be used
when creating a flow.
At the end of "mlx5_flow", a nested structure "mlx5_flow_handle"
located. It contains all the items used both for creating and
destroying a flow. Also, it consists of common items, and DV / Verbs
specific items.
