> Subject: [PATCH] net/mlx5: fix E-Switch egress mirror flow validation
> The stored metadata in all registers C were lost in E-Switch egress
> mirroring flows due to HW limitation. The register C0 keeps the
> source vport index that also was used as one of the flow matcher.
> While sample action and jump action (jump to table X) was in the
> E-Switch egress flow, the flow in the next table X wasn't hit since
> source vport value lost.
> The modify actions after sample action should be applied to the packet
> on normal path, not to the sampled packet. In order to support this
> mlx5 PMD splits the flow into sub flows and jump action is engaged
> implicitly, causing malfunction due to registers corruption.
> This patch adds the validation the for E-Switch mirroring jump egress
> flow, and checks for this hidden jump as well and reject the flows with
> modify actions after sampling.
