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
RTE_CRYPTO_CIPHER_AES_GCM and RTE_CRYPTO_CIPHER_AES_CCM there.
