A new DPDK release candidate is ready for testing:

There are 293 new patches in this snapshot,
more than expected for a light release cycle.

Release notes:

Highlights of 21.02-rc2:
	- new pmdinfogen with Windows support
	- power management for core polling single ethdev queue
	- Marvell OCTEON TX EP net PMD
	- Mellanox compress PMD

Please test and report issues on bugs.dpdk.org.

The -rc3 should include only some bug fixes, cleanups, doc and tooling.

The goal is to complete the release before the Chinese New Year
