This patchset adds the special "remote" feature to the tap PMD, that
actually enables capturing traffic from another netdevice. This is
especially useful to get packets into the DPDK app, when the remote
netdevice has no DPDK support.

The "remote" feature requires flow API support as flow rules will be
configured on the remote netdevice for redirection, using the same

This series applies on top of:

  [PATCH 0/4] net/tap: support flow API

v2 changes:
  - rebase on top of updated "net/tap: support flow API"
  - fix implicit flow flush when closing the netdevices

Pascal Mazon (4):
  net/tap: add remote netdevice traffic capture
  net/tap: reflect tap flags on the remote
  net/tap: use the remote MAC address if available
  net/tap: set MTU on the remote
