This patch introduces the new devargs:

tx_pp - enables accurate packet send scheduling on mbuf timestamps
  in the PMD. On the device start if "rte_dynflag_timestamp"
  dynamic flag is registered and this devarg non-zero value is
  specified, the driver initializes all necessary internal
  infrastructure to provide packet scheduling. The parameter
  value specifies scheduling granularity in nanoseconds.

tx_skew - the parameter adjusts the send packet scheduling on
  timestamps and represents the average delay between beginning
  of the transmitting descriptor processing by the hardware and
  appearance of actual packet data on the wire. The value should
  be provided in nanoseconds and is valid only if tx_pp parameter
  is specified. The default value is zero.

+- To provide the packet send scheduling on mbuf timestamps the ``tx_pp``
+  parameter should be specified, RTE_MBUF_DYNFIELD_TIMESTAMP_NAME and
+  RTE_MBUF_DYNFLAG_TIMESTAMP_NAME should be registered by application.
+  When PMD sees the RTE_MBUF_DYNFLAG_TIMESTAMP_NAME set on the packet
+  being sent it tries to synchronize the time of packet appearing on
+  the wire with the specified packet timestamp. It the specified one
+  is in the past it should be ignored, if one is in the distant future
+  it should be capped with some reasonable value (in range of seconds).
+  These specific cases ("too late" and "distant future") can be optionally
+  reported via device xstats to assist applications to detect the
+  time-related problems.
+
+  There is no any packet reordering according timestamps is supposed,
+  neither within packet burst, nor between packets, it is an entirely
+  application responsibility to generate packets and its timestamps
+  in desired order. The timestamps can be put only in the first packet
+  in the burst providing the entire burst scheduling.
