It does not compile for ARM (not tested for POWER):
	drivers/net/i40e/i40e_rxtx_vec_neon.c: In function '_recv_raw_pkts_vec':
		229:2: error: unknown type name 'uint32'
		uint32 *ptype_tbl = rxq->vsi->adapter->ptype_tbl;

Given that
	- it changes NEON and Altivec code
	- it does not compile on ARM
	- there is no Ack from NEON or Altivec maintainers (they were not Cc'ed)
I really doubt it has been tested.
That's why it won't be in RC1.

If NEON and Altivec maintainers agree, we can give it a chance for RC2.
