Commit Message

Rahul Bhansali June 23, 2022, 9:38 a.m. UTC
This adds the support of NEON based lpm lookup along with
multi packet processing for burst send in packets routing.

Performance impact:
On cn10k, with poll mode inline protocol, outbound performance
increased by ~8% and inbound performance increased by ~6%.

Changes in v3: updated port group header file name for Neon.

Changes in v2: Removed Neon packet grouping function and used
the common one.
