Series [1] requires that certain experimental flow features in DPDK
be promoted to stable. Also, reviewers request that some drivers be
adjusted to support flow action REPRESENTED_PORT. This series takes
care of that and also proceeds to remove deprecated items / actions.

Nevertheless, actions PF and VF are not removed for now since there
are PMDs which offer combined use of such actions with action QUEUE
in flow rules without attribute "transfer". Such problems will have
to be addressed either in v2 or in terms of a separate patch series.

The same goes for item / action PORT_ID. Will address it separately.

Applied, thanks.

Please are you working on a follow up
for other deprecated actions and items?
