+A burst in DPDK compression can be a combination of stateless and stateful operations with a
+condition that for stateful ops only one op at a time should be enqueued from a particular stream
+i.e. two ops should never belong to the same stream in a single burst.
+However, a burst may contain multiple stateful ops, as long as each op is attached to a different
+stream, i.e. a burst can look like:
 
 +---------------+--------------+--------------+-----------------+--------------+--------------+
 | enqueue_burst | op1.no_flush | op2.no_flush | op3.flush_final | op4.no_flush | op5.no_flush |
 +---------------+--------------+--------------+-----------------+--------------+--------------+
 
-Where, op1 .. op5 all belong to different independent data units. op1, op2, op4, op5 must be stateful
-as stateless ops can only use flush full or final and op3 can be of type stateless or stateful.
-Every op with type set to RTE_COMP_OP_STATELESS must be attached to priv_xform and
-Every op with type set to RTE_COMP_OP_STATEFUL *must* be attached to stream.

 Since each operation in a burst is independent and thus can be completed
-out-of-order, applications which need ordering, should setup per-op user data
-area with reordering information so that it can determine enqueue order at

-Also if multiple threads calls enqueue_burst() on same queue pair then it’s
