Hi Jasvinder,

There is a patchset has been merged into main and next-net repo to
convert port_id from 8bits to 16bits.
This PMD also should reflect this conversion, can you please rebase PMD
on top of latest next-net?

Please keep existing Acks in next version.

Also there are lots of UNNECESSARY_PARENTHESES checkpatch warnings, can
you please fix them?

Checkpatch also gives warning about MAINTAINERS file updates, not sure
why, can you please check this?
