Hey Fiona,

Is this really a limitation of DOCSISBPI mode or just the PMDs which 
currently support these operations. I don't see any reason why DOCSISBPI 
mode cipher operation precludes scatter gather operations on the source 

If there is some fundamental reason why scatter gather operations can't 
be supported I think documenting this in the rte_crypto_cipher_algorithm 
enumeration comments make more sense than in the rte_crypto_sym_op 
structure, as we already specify extra requirements
