> This commit adds following features to the routing pipeline;
> 1. Implements the tracking mechanism for the routing pipeline for identifying
> the physical nic port where a specific output ports of the routing pipeline are
> eventually connected. Depending upon the application, tracking could involve
> traversing the other intermediate pipelines.
> The pipelines such as pass-through allows tracking to be performaned through
> them becasue of straightforward connections between their input and output
> ports, while pipelines like flow-classifications, firewall fails the tracking
> because of dependency upon the table rule set. As a result of tracking
> mechainsm, routing pipeline uses the real MAC addresses of the network
> interfaces instead of hardcoded default value.
> 2. Adds support for automatic route automatic update when physical NIC ports
> change their state (up/down) or configuration. Every time a physical port
> goes up/down, a call-back function that the specific pipeline type
> (e.g. routing) registered with NIC ports at init time; will simply add/delete
> a route associated with that output port.

>   ip_pipeline: increase macros values
>   ip_pipeline: linking routing pipeline output ports with NIC ports
>   ip_pipeline: assign nic ports mac address to the routing pipeline
>     outports
>   ip_pipeline: automatic routes update with the change in nic ports

Applied, thanks
