Hi,

> Add IPsec library guide and update release notes.

A quick look at the guide hint me that you should check the spelling.

Please keep the spacing (2 blank lines before heading).

I've seen other minor spacing mistakes in other patches.
Please check, thanks.

Right now it is not implemented.
But the whole library code structure allows it to be added (if someone would decide to).

I think it is way above my drawing capabilities :)

Ok, anything specific information you think has to be added here?

I think you can refer to 
http://doc.dpdk.org/guides/prog_guide/rte_security.html
something similar to that would explain it in a better way.

Probably a few lines to explain the feature(very brief) and how it is 
implemented in ipsec lib and the limitation if any

+IPsec Packet Processing Library
+===============================
+
+The DPDK provides a library for IPsec data-path processing.
+The library utilizes existing DPDK crypto-dev and
+security API to provide application with transparent and
+high peromant IPsec packet processing API.
+The library is concentrated on data-path protocols processing
+(ESP and AH), IKE protocol(s) implementation is out of scope
+for that library.
+
+SA level API
+------------
+
+This API operates on IPsec SA level.
+It provides functionality that allows user for given SA to process
+inbound and outbound IPsec packets.
+To be more specific:
+*  for inbound ESP/AH packets perform decryption, authentication, integrity checking, remove ESP/AH related headers
+*  for outbound packets perform payload encryption, attach ICV, update/add IP headers, add ESP/AH headers/trailers,
+*  setup related mbuf felids (ol_flags, tx_offloads, etc.).
+*  initialize/un-initialize given SA based on user provided parameters.
+
+SA-level API is based on top of crypto-dev/security API and relies on
+them to perform actual cipher and integrity checking.
+
+Due to the nature of crypto-dev API (enqueue/deque model) library introduces
+asynchronous API for IPsec packets destined to be processed by crypto-device.
+
+Expected API call sequence for data-path processing would be:
+
+.. code-block:: c
+
+    /* enqueue for processing by crypto-device */
+    rte_ipsec_pkt_crypto_prepare(...);
+    rte_cryptodev_enqueue_burst(...);
+    /* dequeue from crypto-device and do final processing (if any) */
+    rte_cryptodev_dequeue_burst(...);
+    rte_ipsec_pkt_crypto_group(...); /* optional */
+    rte_ipsec_pkt_process(...);
+
+For packets destined for inline processing no extra overhead
+is required and synchronous API call: rte_ipsec_pkt_process()
+is sufficient for that case.
+
+.. note::
+
+    For more details about the IPsec API, please refer to the *DPDK API Reference*.
+
+Current implementation supports all four currently defined rte_security types:
+*  RTE_SECURITY_ACTION_TYPE_NONE
+
+*  RTE_SECURITY_ACTION_TYPE_INLINE_CRYPTO
+
+*  RTE_SECURITY_ACTION_TYPE_INLINE_PROTOCOL
+
+*  RTE_SECURITY_ACTION_TYPE_LOOKASIDE_PROTOCOL
+
+To accommodate future custom implementations function pointers
+model is used for both for *crypto_prepare* and *process*
+impelementations.
+
+Supported features:

+
+*  ESP protocol transport mode.

+*  ESN and replay window.
