Instead of N-tuple filter RTE flow API should be used.

Preserve struct rte_eth_ntuple_filter in ethdev API since
the structure and related defines are used in flow classify
library and a number of drivers.

Preserve RTE_ETH_FILTER_NTUPLE because of usage in drivers.

 Note these functions interface the deprecated legacy filtering framework,
 superseded by *rte_flow*. See `Flow rules management`_.
 
-2tuple_filter
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-
-Add or delete a 2-tuple filter,
-which identifies packets by specific protocol and destination TCP/UDP port
-and forwards packets into one of the receive queues::
-
-   2tuple_filter (port_id) (add|del) dst_port (dst_port_value) \
-                 protocol (protocol_value) mask (mask_value) \
-                 tcp_flags (tcp_flags_value) priority (prio_value) \
-                 queue (queue_id)
-
-The available information parameters are:
-
-* ``port_id``: The port which the 2-tuple filter assigned on.
-
-* ``dst_port_value``: Destination port in L4.
-
-* ``protocol_value``: IP L4 protocol.
-
-* ``mask_value``: Participates in the match or not by bit for field above, 1b means participate.
-
-* ``tcp_flags_value``: TCP control bits. The non-zero value is invalid, when the pro_value is not set to 0x06 (TCP).
-
-* ``prio_value``: Priority of this filter.
-
-* ``queue_id``: The receive queue associated with this 2-tuple filter.
-
-Example, to add/remove an 2tuple filter rule::
-
-   testpmd> 2tuple_filter 0 add dst_port 32 protocol 0x06 mask 0x03 \
-                          tcp_flags 0x02 priority 3 queue 3
-
-   testpmd> 2tuple_filter 0 del dst_port 32 protocol 0x06 mask 0x03 \
-                          tcp_flags 0x02 priority 3 queue 3
-
-5tuple_filter
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-
-Add or delete a 5-tuple filter,
-which consists of a 5-tuple (protocol, source and destination IP addresses, source and destination TCP/UDP/SCTP port)
-and routes packets into one of the receive queues::
-
-   5tuple_filter (port_id) (add|del) dst_ip (dst_address) src_ip \
-                 (src_address) dst_port (dst_port_value) \
-                 src_port (src_port_value) protocol (protocol_value) \
-                 mask (mask_value) tcp_flags (tcp_flags_value) \
-                 priority (prio_value) queue (queue_id)
-
-The available information parameters are:
-
-* ``port_id``: The port which the 5-tuple filter assigned on.
-
-* ``dst_address``: Destination IP address.
-
-* ``src_address``: Source IP address.
-
-* ``dst_port_value``: TCP/UDP destination port.
-
-* ``src_port_value``: TCP/UDP source port.
-
-* ``protocol_value``: L4 protocol.
-
-* ``mask_value``: Participates in the match or not by bit for field above, 1b means participate
-
