It is confusing to add a mempool guide, given that we already have
a mempool section in the programmer's guide:

And we will probably need also some doc for bus drivers.

I think it would be more interesting to create a platform guide
where you can describe the bus and the mempool.
OK for doc/guides/platform/octeontx.rst ?

I choose to integrate this series without this last patch.
I mark this patch as rejected.
Please submit a new one separately.

A slash is missing at the end of the directory.

Until now, the mempool and bus drivers are listed with net drivers.
We could move them in a platform section later.
For now, let's put it as "Cavium OcteonTX" in net drivers.

I fixed and merged it with the first patch.

The index must not be part of Octeontx section.
