Mark requires a tag resource to be registered as part of
the value assigning. It is not possible during a copy
operation from a packet field. Forbid this in MODIFY_FIELD.

Sorry, commit message seems not to be clear even for one who is in context.
"tag resource" - is this hardware resource?
"not possible" - due to hardware limitation?

And I would add few words about the final table "match-set flow tag resource" -
not too many details, just explain - if we copy packet field to MARK substitution register -
we can't handle actual value copying in the "match-set" table.

With best regards,
Slava
