[dpdk-users] FW: i40e + rte_flow: Drop filter not working

Xiaolong, maybe it would be useful for every vendor to maintain a matrix of
every flow action/match that's supported and not for each PMD? I know we've
had this problem with Mellanox as well. It's likely only a handful of
vendors right now that support any form of rte_flow, so starting it soon
would be nice. Also, I believe in Mellanox's case there are some rules that
are done in hardware and some that aren't, so it would also be nice to
distinguish between those. Someone from Mellanox can correct me if I'm
wrong on that.
