Tunnel offload API requires application to query PMD for specific flow
items and actions. Application uses these PMD specific elements to
build flow rules according to the tunnel offload model.
The model does not restrict private elements location in a flow rule,
but the current MLX5 PMD implementation expected that tunnel offload
rule will begin with PMD specific elements.
The patch places tunnel offload private PMD flow elements between
general RTE flow elements in a rule.

Can you please give some samples what are "PMD specific elements" required to be
queried by application? To understand issue better.

Why we need to refer the mlx5 pmd implementation in the testpmd patch? Is this
patch trying to align testpmd to the mlx5 implementation?

Why?

Overall what was the problem, what was failing and what was its impact?

And how changing the private elements location in the flow rule solving the issue?
