This test suite provides testing of the support of scattered packets by
Poll Mode Drivers using testpmd, verifying the ability to receive and
transmit scattered multi-segment packets made up of multiple
non-contiguous memory buffers. This is tested through 5 different cases
in which the length of the packets sent are less than the mbuf size,
equal to the mbuf size, and 1, 4, and 5 bytes greater than the mbuf size
in order to show both the CRC and the packet data are capable of
existing in the first, second, or both buffers.

Naturally, if the PMD is capable of forwarding scattered packets which
it receives as input, this shows it is capable of both receiving and
transmitting scattered packets.

+"""Multi-segment packet scattering testing suite.
+This testing suite tests the support of transmitting and receiving scattered packets. This is shown
+by the Poll Mode Driver being able to forward scattered multi-segment packets composed of multiple
+non-contiguous memory buffers. To ensure the receipt of scattered packets, the DMA rings of the
+port's RX queues must be configured with mbuf data buffers whose size is less than the maximum
+If it is the case that the Poll Mode Driver can forward scattered packets which it receives, then
+this suffices to show the Poll Mode Driver is capable of both receiving and transmitting scattered

+    (CRC included) ethernet frame in a mono-segment packet. The testing of scattered packets is
+    done by sending a packet whose length is greater than the size of the configured size of mbuf
+    data buffers. There are a total of 5 packets sent within test cases which have lengths less
+    than, equal to, and greater than the mbuf size. There are multiple packets sent with lengths
+    greater than the mbuf size in order to test cases such as:
+    1. A single byte of the CRC being in a second buffer while the remaining 3 bytes are stored in
+        the first buffer alongside packet data.
