Slava Ovsiienko Nov. 23, 2021, 7:59 a.m. UTC
There generic RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_MODIFY_FIELD action was
introduced by [1]. This action provides the unified way
to perform various arithmetic and transfer operations over
packet network header fields and packet metadata.

[1] commit 641dbe4fb053 ("net/mlx5: support modify field flow action")

On other side there are a bunch of multiple legacy actions,
that can be superseded by the generic modify field action:

RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_SET_MPLS_TTL    bnxt*
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_DEC_MPLS_TTL    bnxt*
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_SET_NW_TTL      bnxt*
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_DEC_NW_TTL      bnxt*, sfc
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_COPY_TTL_OUT    bnxt*
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_COPY_TTL_IN     bnxt*
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_IPV4_SRC       bnxt,  cxgbe, mlx5
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_IPV4_DST       bnxt,  cxgbe, mlx5
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_IPV6_SRC       bnxt*, cxgbe, mlx5
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_IPV6_DST       bnxt*, cxgbe, mlx5
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_TP_SRC         bnxt,  cxgbe, mlx5
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_TP_DST         bnxt,  cxgbe, mlx5
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_DEC_TTL            bnxt,  mlx5, sfc
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_TTL            bnxt*, mlx5
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_MAC_SRC        bnxt*,  cxgbe, mlx5

RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_IPV4_DSCP      mlx5
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_IPV6_DSCP      mlx5
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_SET_VLAN_VID    bnxt, cnxk, cxgbe, enic,
                                        mlx5, octeontx2, sfc
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_SET_VLAN_PCP    bnxt, cnxk, cxgbe, enic,
                                        mlx5, octeontx2, sfc
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_TAG            mlx5
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_META           mlx5

[bnxt*] means the PMD source code references the action, but there
        is no support implemented (actions rejected with ENOTSUP error)

This note deprecates the following RTE Flow actions:
1. As not supported by any of PMDs:

RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_SET_MPLS_TTL
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_DEC_MPLS_TTL
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_SET_NW_TTL
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_COPY_TTL_OUT
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_COPY_TTL_IN

2. As supposed to be replaced by generig field modify action:
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_OF_DEC_NW_TTL
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_IPV4_SRC
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_IPV4_DST
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_IPV6_SRC
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_IPV6_DST
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_TP_SRC
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_TP_DST
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_DEC_TTL
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_TTL
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_MAC_SRC
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_MAC_DST
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_INC_TCP_SEQ
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_DEC_TCP_SEQ
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_INC_TCP_ACK
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_DEC_TCP_ACK
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_IPV4_DSCP
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_IPV6_DSCP
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_TAG
RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_SET_META

The VLAN set actions are interrelated to VLAN header insertion/removal
and supported by multiple PMDs and supposed not to be deprecated.
