+* ethdev: for 17.05 it is planned to deprecate the following nine rte_eth_dev_* functions
+  and move them into the ixgbe PMD:
+  ``rte_eth_dev_bypass_init``, ``rte_eth_dev_bypass_state_set``, ``rte_eth_dev_bypass_state_show``,
+  ``rte_eth_dev_bypass_event_store``, ``rte_eth_dev_bypass_event_show``, ``rte_eth_dev_wd_timeout_store``,
+  ``rte_eth_dev_bypass_wd_timeout_show``, ``rte_eth_dev_bypass_ver_show``, ``rte_eth_dev_bypass_wd_reset``.
+  The following fields will be removed from ``struct eth_dev_ops``:
+  ``bypass_init_t``, ``bypass_state_set_t``, ``bypass_state_show_t``, ``bypass_event_set_t``,
+  ``bypass_event_show_t``, ``bypass_wd_timeout_set_t``, ``bypass_wd_timeout_show_t``,
+  ``bypass_ver_show_t``, ``bypass_wd_reset_t``.
+  The functions will be renamed to the following, and moved to the ``ixgbe`` PMD:
+  ``rte_pmd_ixgbe_bypass_init``, ``rte_pmd_ixgbe_bypass_state_set``, ``rte_pmd_ixgbe_bypass_state_show``,
+  ``rte_pmd_ixgbe_bypass_event_set``, ``rte_pmd_ixgbe_bypass_event_show``, ``rte_pmd_ixgbe_bypass_wd_timeout_set``,
