From: Ori Kam <orika@nvidia.com>

Currently there is a dedicated modify function for each
field that the application wants to change.
For example:
rte_flow_action_type_set_tp_port to modify destination port of UDP/TCP.
rte_flow_action_type_set_ipv4_dst to modify destination of IPv4.

A new function rte_flow_action_modif_field DPDK added the ability
to use the same function to modify any field, in addtion to be able to
modify the value based on different field and not just immediate value.
