This series add TSO support in ixgbe DPDK driver. This is a rework
of the series sent earlier this week [1]. This work is based on
another version [2] that was posted several months ago and
which included a mbuf rework that is now in mainline.

Changes in v3:

- indicate that rte_get_rx_ol_flag_name() and rte_get_tx_ol_flag_name()
  should be kept synchronized with flags definition
- use sizeof() when appropriate in rte_raw_cksum()
- remove double semicolon in ixgbe driver
- reorder tx ol_flags as requested by Thomas
- add missing copyrights when big modifications are made
- enhance the help of tx_cksum command in testpmd
- enhance the description of csumonly (comments)

Changes in v2:

- move rte_get_rx_ol_flag_name() and rte_get_tx_ol_flag_name() in
  rte_mbuf.c, and fix comments
- fix inner_l2_len and inner_l3_len bitfields: use uint64_t instead
  of uint16_t
- replace assignation of l2_len and l3_len by assignation of tx_offload.
  It now includes inner_l2_len and inner_l3_len at the same time.
- introduce a new cksum api in rte_ip.h following discussion with
- reorder commits to have all TSO commits at the end of the series
- use ol_flags for phdr checksum calculation (this now matches ixgbe
  API: standard pseudo hdr cksum for TCP cksum offload, pseudo hdr
  cksum without ip paylen for TSO). This will probably be changed
  with a dev_prep_tx() like function for 2.0 release.
- rebase on latest head

This series first fixes some bugs that were discovered during the
development, adds some changes to the mbuf API (new l4_len and
tso_segsz fields), adds TSO support in ixgbe, reworks testpmd
csum forward engine, and finally adds TSO support in testpmd so it
can be validated.

The new fields added in mbuf try to be generic enough to apply to
other hardware in the future. To delegate the TCP segmentation to the
hardware, the user has to:

  - set the PKT_TX_TCP_SEG flag in mbuf->ol_flags (this flag implies
  - if it's IPv4, set the PKT_TX_IP_CKSUM flag and write the IP checksum
    to 0 in the packet
  - fill the mbuf offload information: l2_len, l3_len, l4_len, tso_segsz
  - calculate the pseudo header checksum and set it in the TCP header,
    as required when doing hardware TCP checksum offload

The test report will be added as an answer to this cover letter and
could be linked in the concerned commits.
