  DPDK sched library allows runtime configuration of the pipe profiles to the
pipes of the subport once scheduler hierarchy is constructed. However, to
change the subport level bandwidth, existing hierarchy needs to be
dismantled and whole process of building hierarchy under subport nodes
needs to be repeated which might result in router downtime. Furthermore,
due to lack of dynamic configuration of the subport bandwidth profile
configuration (shaper and Traffic class rates), the user application
is unable to dynamically re-distribute the excess-bandwidth of one subport
among other subports in the scheduler hierarchy. Therefore, it is also not
possible to adjust the subport bandwidth profile in sync with dynamic
changes in pipe profiles of subscribers who want to consume higher
bandwidth opportunistically.

This patch series implements dynamic configuration of the subport bandwidth
profile to overcome the runtime situation when group of subscribers are not
using the allotted bandwidth and dynamic bandwidth re-distribution is
needed the without making any structural changes in the hierarchy.

The implementation work includes refactoring the existing api and
data structures defined for port and subport level, new APIs for
adding subport level bandwidth profiles that can be used in runtime.

v8 -> v9
   - updated ABI section in release notes.
   - Addressed review comments from patch 8
     of v8.

v7 -> v8
   - Fix doxygen and clang build error.

v6 -> v7
   - Fix checkpatch warning
     and patch apply issue.

v5 -> v6
   - Fix build warning.
   - change cli of tmgr :
       * remove queue size and pipes per subport 
	 from cmdline argument to add traffic 
	 manager subport profile.
       * add pipes per subport as cmdline argument
	 to create traffic manger port.
v4 -> v5
   - Review comments from patch 3 & 6
     from v4 are addressed.

v3 -> v4
   - Fix patch apply issue.

v2 -> v3
   - Review comments from patch 3 & 5
     from v2 are addressed.

v1 -> v2
   - Fix checkpatch warnings.
