Implement a generic copy flow API to allow copying of an arbitrary
header field (as well as mark, metadata or tag) to another item.

This generic copy mechanism removes the necessity to implement a
separate RTE Flow action every time we need to modify a new packet
field in the future. A user-provided value can be used from a
specified tag/metadata or directly copied from other packet field.

The number of bits to copy as well as the offset to start from can
be specified to allow a partial copy or copy into an arbitrary
place in a packet for greater flexibility.

+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

+Copy ``width`` bits from ``src`` item to ``dst`` item.
+
+An arbitrary header field (as well as mark, metadata or tag values)
+can be used as both source and destination items as set by ``item``.
+
+Inner packet header fields can be accessed using the ``index`` and
+it is possible to start the copy from the ``offset`` bits in an item.
