Hi Dariusz,

metaday dynamic field is explicitly registered when testpmd
command used to enable tx metadata, or rte flow rule created
with "set_meta" action.

Can you please document more when this implicit enablement
is required? And why that case doesn't cover above explicit
enable cases?

According below code it is only registered in the DST_TYPE block,
not is 'else' (which seems src) leg, is this OK?

Before this patch, when a user inserted a flow rule with MODIFY_FIELD action,
which modified packet metadata, the metadata dynamic field was not registered, as opposed to
what happened with SET_META action. Goal of this patch is to make the behavior consistent
between these two actions.

Maybe using "implicit" in the commit message was misleading here. 
What do you think about rewording the commit message to something like the one below?

"This patch adds registration of metadata dynamic field and flag
whenever a MODIFY_FIELD action with META as source and/or destination
field is used. It makes the behavior consistent with SET_META action, where
metadata dynamic field and flag is registered on flow rule creation."

No, I should add registering for source field as well.

I think consistency should be ensured by the PMD.
Why not registering the field in the PMD?
