> > The patch set supports flow director on fortville.
> > It includes:
> > - set up/tear down fortville resources to support flow director, such as queue and vsi.
> > - support operation to add or delete 8 flow types of the flow director filters, they are ipv4, tcpv4, udpv4, sctpv4, ipv6, tcpv6, udpv6,
> > sctpv6.
> > - support flushing flow director table (all filters).
> > - support operation to get flow director information.
> > - match status statistics, FD_ID report.
> > - support operation to configure flexible payload and its mask
> > - support flexible payload involved in comparison and flex bytes report.
> > v2 changes:
> > - create real fdir vsi and assign queue 0 pair to it.
> > - check filter status report on the rx queue 0
> > v3 changes:
> > - redefine filter APIs to support multi-kind filters
> > - support sctpv4 and sctpv6 type flows
> > - support flexible payload involved in comparison
> > v4 changes:
> > - strip the filter APIs definitions from this patch set
> > - extend mbuf field to support flex bytes report.
> > - fix typos.
> > v5 changes:
> > - redefine structure rte_eth_fdir_info
> > - add doxygen comments about flexible payload and mbuf extend
> > - fix typos
> > v6 changes:
> > - extend structure rte_eth_fdir_info
> > - move the flex payload and mask setting from filter_ctrl api
> > to i40e_fdir_configure when start device
> > - change the structure for flex payload and mask setting, and
> > add verification of those arguments before HW setting is taken.
> > - change flexpayloads from words to bytes format
> > - add two more flow_types
> > - organize duplicate code lines to macro or function
> > - add and correct doxygen comments
> > - fix the merging error in v5

I feel the flow director features could be better explained,
and probably the API won't be enough generic for the next driver implementing
flow director. But no comment from the community means it's OK to integrate.
Now we move on this API and the old one must be removed.
Converting ixgbe to this new API must be the top priority.
It must be clear to everyone that no new Fortville feature will be accepted
until a full clean-up of the old filtering API.
Thank you Jingjing for the big work. Step done.
