There was a LIBABIVER update comment in patch 1/4, let me continue it here.

First lets extract documentation on its own patch, instead of being part
of "examples" update.

And update it a little more:

1- Remove deprecation notice.
Each patch implements a deprecation notice also should remove the
notice. rel_notes/deprecation.rst should be updated to remove port_id
related paragraph.

2- LIBABIVER values of increased libraries should be increased.

LIBABIVER is defined in each library Makefile, and set to the value of
current version of the library.

The libraries breaking ABI/API should increase this by one.

So for this patch, following libraries should be updated:

Please double check the list the libraries in case I missed.

And it seems we are breaking more API than initially intended. Should we
highlight this more?

3- Document updated library versions in release notes
in release notes, there is a "Shared Library Versions" section. This
section lists all libraries with their versions, like:

"   librte_ethdev.so.7" [1]

This should be updates as:

"   librte_ethdev.so.8"

It seems I have selected wrong sample :(, there is a mismatch in
Makefile LIBABIVER value and release notes version for librte_ethdev, I
will send a patch for it.
