[dpdk-users] Flow director struct rte_flow_item_raw guild

Hi Adrien, 

Thanks for reply,

I tried to trace the mlx5 and ixgbe driver source code in DPDK source and notice that the flow director APIs are processed in it.

I also compared the difference of flow director APIs between both two drivers and found that there is no rte_flow_item_raw defined in mlx5 driver.

Is there any possible mlx5 series NICs support rte_flow_item_raw in the future?

Thanks a lot.

Best Regards,
