Xueming(Steven) Li Jan. 13, 2021, 1:44 p.m. UTC
This patch introduces multi-host controller for ethdev representor
syntax, examples:

[[c#]pf#]vf#: VF port representor/s, example: pf0vf1
[[c#]pf#]sf#: SF port representor/s, example: c1pf1sf[0-3]

c# is controller(host) ID/range in case of multi-host, optional. It is
mostly for SmartNIC attached to multiple hosts in the same rack to allow
routing the packets between PF/SF/VF running on these hosts.

Controller ID is physical host ID in multi-host, for end-user (e.g. OVS)
it is transparent as part of representor syntax, sam as representor
ID, interpreted by PMD.
