The SDAP is a protocol in the LTE stack on top of PDCP for
QOS. A particular PDCP session may or may not have
SDAP enabled. But if it is enabled, SDAP header should be
authenticated but not encrypted if both confidentiality and
integrity is enabled. Hence, the driver should be intimated
from the xform so that it skip the SDAP header while encryption.

A new field is added in the PDCP xform to specify SDAP is enabled.
The overall size of the xform is not changed, as hfn_ovrd is just
a flag and does not need uint32. Hence, it is converted to uint8_t
and a 16 bit reserved field is added for future.

[DC] Should we consider removing the API code out of the security documentation?
It's a direct copy of the API code itself, and just means 2 files need to be updated for every API change.
And as with 'hfn_ovrd', sometimes it's forgotten.
From maintainability point of view, it might be better just remove it.

[DC] Very minor thing... add space between 'protocol' and '(SDAP)' in the comment block.

And same comment for the documentation if you choose to keep the API code blocks there too.

Yes we can remove it. I will remove it in a separate patch.

Sure. Will add it.

Add sdap support.
