Based on the discussion in below mail thread, it is concluded that
all traffic manager API's (rte_tm.h) need to be marked experimental
till few more releases to support further improvements to spec.
Adding deprication notice for the same in advance.

+* traffic manager: Based on the discussion in the thread
+ https://mails.dpdk.org/archives/dev/2020-April/164970.html it turns out that
+ all traffic manager API's in ``rte_tm.h`` were mistakenly made stable even
+ though the MAINTAINER's file and header file text mentions it to be still
+ experimental. Given that even now, both the maintainer and other contributor's
+ are inclined towards keeping those API's in experimental state till some more
+ releases in support of spec improvements, it is decided that all API's in
+ ``rte_tm.h`` will be marked back as experimental in v20.11 DPDK release.
