[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2] doc: add cryptodev xform deprecation notice

This patch adds the deprecation notice of changing Cryptodev
symmetric xform structure. The proposed change is to making
key pointers in the crypto xforms (cipher, auth, aead) to
indicate neither the library or the drivers will not change
the content of the key buffer.
