  Improvements to Inline inbound and outbound processing fast path routines
rte_security_set_pkt_metadata() and rte_security_get_userdata() to make
them inline functions and also provide mechanism for drivers to support
fast userdata and metadata access instead of driver specific per-pkt
function callbacks.

This series updates requirements of mbuf fields to be updated for outbound
inline processing.

Nithin Dabilpuram (4):
  security: enforce semantics for Tx inline processing
  security: add option for faster udata or mdata access
  examples/ipsec-secgw: update event mode inline path
  doc: remove deprecation notice for security fast path change

- Removed entry from deprecation notice.
- Fixed issue with rte_security_set_pkt_metadata() to pass instance instead
  of device ptr to non-inline C function.

- Rebased and fixed compilation issue with rte_security_get_userdata() on
  32-bit platform
- Updated l2_len on patch 3/3 only for outbound.

- Remove restrictions on rte_security_set_pkt_metadata() w.r.t pkt content
- Add inline functions for rte_security_set_pkt_metadata() and 
  rte_security_get_userdata() and also faster mdata, udata access via
  patch 2/3
