This patch set enabled package downloading to the device. The package is
to be in the /lib/firmware/intel/ice/ddp directory and named ice.pkg.
The package is shared by the kernel driver and the DPDK PMD.

If package download failed, driver need to go to safe mode. This patch
set disabled RSS, QINQ, checksum offload in safe mode.

The patch set also enabled RSS for UPD/TCP/SCTP+IPV4/IPV6 packets.
