Alexander Kozyrev Jan. 18, 2022, 3:33 p.m. UTC
Add testpmd support for the rte_flow_item_template and
rte_flow_action_template APIs. Provide the command line interface
for the template creation/destruction. Usage example:
  testpmd> flow item_template 0 create item_template_id 2
           template eth dst is 00:16:3e:31:15:c3 / end
  testpmd> flow action_template 0 create action_template_id 4
           template drop / end mask drop / end
  testpmd> flow action_template 0 destroy action_template 4
  testpmd> flow item_template 0 destroy item_template 2
