Due to hardware limitations, the decap action can't follow the
sample action in the same flow, to keep the original action order
of sample and decap actions the flow was internally split by PMD,
and decap action was moved into suffix subflow in the new table.

There is a specific combination of raw decap and raw encap actions
to specify "L3 encapsulation" packet transformation - raw decap action
to remove L2 header and raw encap to add the tunnel header.
This specific L3 encapsulation is encoded as a single packet reformat
hardware transaction and is supported by hardware after sample
action (no hardware limitations for packet reformat).

The patch checks whether the decap action is the part of "L3 encapsulation"
and does not move the decap action into suffix subflow for the case.

Which decap action? Pleas be more specific.

"the" new table? which one?

Was there an issue? Above seems to say all is fine.

Is this combination the problem? It was not working before this patch?
Please describe what happened.

I think you mean "is part of".

All of decap,  vxlan_decap, nvgre_decap and raw_decap.
Will update details.

" sample and decap actions the flow was internally split by PMD, " means
that PMD split internally into two flows:prefix subflow with sample action in original table;
suffix subflow with decap action in the new table;

The issue is mentioned below that 'L3 encapsulation' case (raw_decap+raw_encap), 
the previous code not consier the combination decap/encap case.
And under this case flow don't need split.

L3 encap is working without sample action or sample is working without L3 encap;

OK please be more explicit in the next version.
