To understand this, please refer to explanation (23.4) at http://dpdk.org/doc/guides/sample_app_ug/qos_scheduler.html
The above code snippet is about classifying the incoming traffic packets based on their QinQ double VLAN tags and the IP destination address.
The subport ID and pipe ID are determined by reading 12 bits svlan field at SUBPORT_OFFSET and 12 bits cvlan field at PIPE_OFFSET from the packet header.
Traffic Class, pipe queue and color are determined by reading specific fields at offset QUEUE_OFFSET (Destination IP), QUEUE_OFFSET (Destination IP) and COLOR_OFFSET (Destination IP) from the packet's header.
To read all these values from the packet header, first packet header fields need to be converted from big endian to CPU order. Since these values should not exceed their maximum values determined from configuration file, therefore, "&" operation with parameters such as port_params.n_subports_per_port, port_params.n_pipes_per_subport etc is performed to upper limit them.
For these kind of queries, please use users at dpdk.org.
