[dpdk-dev] [RFC 0/5] ipsec: add inbound SAD

According to RFC 4301 IPSec implementation needs an inbound SA database (SAD).
For each incoming inbound IPSec-protected packet (ESP or AH) it has to
perform a lookup within it’s SAD.
Lookup should be performed by:
Security Parameters Index (SPI) + destination IP (DIP) + source IP (SIP)
  or SPI + DIP
  or SPI only
and an implementation has to return the “longest” existing match.
These series extend DPDK IPsec library with SAD table implementation that:
- conforms to the RFC requirements above
- can scale up to millions of entries
- supports fast lookups
- supports incremental updates

Initial series provide an API to create/destroy SAD, and to
add/delete/lookup entries within given SAD table.
Under the hood it uses three librte_hash tables each of which contains
an entries for a specific SA type (either it is addressed by SPI only
or SPI+DIP or SPI+DIP+SIP) Also this patch series introduce test-sad
application to measure performance of the library. According to our
measurements on SKX for 1M entries average lookup cost is ~80 cycles,
average add cost ~500 cycles.

Next Steps:
- integration with ipsec-secgw
