[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2 0/3] ethdev: add IP address and TCP/UDP port rewrite actions to flow API

This series of patches add support for actions:
- SET_IPV4_SRC - set a new IPv4 source address.
- SET_IPV4_DST - set a new IPv4 destination address.
- SET_IPV6_SRC - set a new IPv6 source address.
- SET_IPV6_DST - set a new IPv6 destination address.
- SET_TP_SRC - set a new TCP/UDP source port number.
- SET_TP_DST - set a new TCP/UDP destination port number.

These actions are useful in Network Address Translation use case
to edit IP address and TCP/UDP port numbers before switching
the packets out to the destination device port.

Patch 1 adds support for IP address rewrite to rte_flow and testpmd.

Patch 2 adds support for TCP/UDP port rewrite to rte_flow and testpmd.

Patch 3 shows CXGBE PMD example to offload these actions to hardware.

Feedback and suggestions will be much appreciated.


RFC v1: http://mails.dpdk.org/archives/dev/2018-June/104913.html
RFC v2: http://mails.dpdk.org/archives/dev/2018-August/109672.html

- Rebased to tip.
- Removed adding actions to app/test-pmd/config.c, to sync with
  rte_flow_conv() changes.

v1 changes since RFC v2:
- Updated comments, help messages, and doc to indicate that IP/TCP/UDP
  of the outermost headers are modified.
- Updated comments and doc to indicate that a corresponding valid flow
  pattern item must be specified to offload corresponding header rewrite
- Re-based CXGBE PMD changes in patch 3 to tip.
- Updated all instances of fw_filter_wr to new fw_filter2_wr and removed
- Ensure correct ULP type is set when offloading NAT actions.
- Returning appropriate RTE_FLOW_ERROR_TYPE_ACTION error if a corresponding
  valid flow pattern item is not found.
- Updated release notes.
