These patches mainly support configuring hash functions.
In detail,
 - It can get or set hash functions.
 - It can configure symmetric hash functions.
   * Get/set symmetric hash enable per port.
   * Get/set symmetric hash enable per flow type.
   * Get/set filter swap configurations.
 - Six commands have been implemented in testpmd to support
   testing above.
   * get_sym_hash_ena_per_port
   * set_sym_hash_ena_per_port
   * get_sym_hash_ena_per_flow_type
   * set_sym_hash_ena_per_flow_type
   * get_filter_swap
   * set_filter_swap
   * get_hash_function
   * set_hash_function

It also uses constant hash keys to replace runtime generating
hash keys. Global initialization is added to correctly put
registers to an initial state.

v3 changes:
* Removed renamings in rte_ethdev.h.
* Redesigned filter control API and its relevant structures/enums.
* Renamed header file from rte_eth_features.h to rte_eth_ctrol.h.
* Remove public header file of rte_i40e.h specific for i40e.
* Added hardware initialization function during port init.
* Used constant random hash keys in i40e PF.
* renamed the commands in testpmd based on the redesigned filter
  control API.

v4 changes:
* Fixed a bug in testpmd to support 'set_sym_hash_ena_per_port'.

v5 changes:
* Integrated with filter API defined recently.
* Remove all for filter API definition, as it has already defined
  and merged recently.

v6 changes:
* Flow type strings are used to replace Packet Classification
  Types, to isolate hardware specific things.
* Implemented the mapping function to convert RSS offload types to
  Packet Classification Types, to isolate the real hardware
  specific things.
* Removed initialization of global registers in i40e PMD, as global
  registers shouldn't be initialized per port.
* Added more annotations to get code more understandable.
* Corrected annotation format for documenation.

Helin Zhang (3):
  i40e: Use constant as the default hash keys
  i40e: support of controlling hash functions
  app/testpmd: add commands to support hash functions
