Currently, the flow meter policy does not support multiple actions
per color; also the allowed action types per color are very limited.
In addition, the policy cannot be pre-defined.

Due to the growing in flow actions offload abilities there is a potential
for the user to use variety of actions per color differently.
This new meter policy API comes to allow this potential in the most ethdev
common way using rte_flow action definition.
A list of rte_flow actions will be provided by the user per color
in order to create a meter policy.
In addition, the API forces to pre-define the policy before
the meters creation in order to allow sharing of single policy
with multiple meters efficiently.

meter_policy_id is added into struct rte_mtr_params.
So that it can get the policy during the meters creation.

Add two common policy template as macros in the header file,

V2: Delete default policy and change relation doc files.
V3: Fix coding style issues.
V4: Fix comments about Depends-on
V5: Fix comments about rte_mtr_meter_policy_add.
V6: Delete policy example.
V7: Fix comments and place two common policy template as macros.
