From: Dekel Peled
> Currently MLX5 PMD can't match on untagged packets specifically.
> Tagged traffic still hits the flows intended for untagged packets.
> If the flow has ETH, it will catch all matching packets, tagged and untagged.
> The solution is to use cvlan_tag bit.
> If mask=1 and value=0 it matches on untagged traffic.
> If mask=1 and value=1 it matches on tagged traffic.
> This is the kernel implementation.
> This patch updated MLX5 PMD to set cvlan_tag mask and value according to
> flow rule contents.
> This update is relevant when using DV flow engine (dv_flow_en=1).
