There is a proposal in progress to totally rework the configuration
of Rx filtering (including flow director, RSS, etc):
The target is to integrate this API in 16.11 and migrate the drivers
as fast as possible.

There were some good comments already but only from people interested
in Cavium, Mellanox and Intel devices.
Please developers and maintainers from Amazon, Broadcom, Chelsio, Cisco,
Netronome, QLogic and others, we are waiting your feedbacks.
The intent is to be as generic as possible. But if unfortunately this
new API do not interface well with the hardware you care of, it will
be really harder to fix it later.

Last question: can you commit to migrate your driver in the 16.11
or 17.02 timeframe?

Please answer in the original thread, not this one. This is only
an announce to get more attention on the thread
	"Generic flow director/filtering/classification API"
