This patch series reorganizes the main datastructure for each
queue, struct ionic_qcq. Its constituent struct ionic_queue and
struct ionic_cq are stripped down first. Then the generic struct
ionic_qcq is stripped down, and a unique struct is created for
each queue type.

The adminq code is consolidated into ionic_main.c as part of the

Next comes some minor performance fixups related to queue posting
and doorbells.

Finally, a minor improvement to Tx packet prep and a minor fix
for LIF init.

* Resend for new DPDK release cycle
* Insert a new patch "net/ionic: remove unused filter delete function" so
  that even more adminq code can be staticized
* Update second-to-last patch which was partially applied in 21.02
