[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2 00/13] net/enic: 19.05 updates

This patch series fixes bugs in enic's implementation of flow API and
adds very limited support for RAW, RSS, and PASSTHRU. Limited RSS and
PASSTHRU are intended to support partial offloads in OVS-DPDK and
VPP. These apps use MARK + default RSS and PASSTHRU + MARK to "mark
packet and then receive normally". Cisco VIC can support these, even
though general RSS and PASSTHRU are not possible.

Intentionally removed Cc: stable from the last patch ("net/enic: fix
several issues with inner packet matching") as it depends on a non-fix
patch ("net/enic: move arguments into struct"). I will submit backport
request for these separately, after rc1.

* Merge doc changes with corresponding code changes.
