v2 updates: typo fixes for checkpatch,  bernard.iremonger comments

The struct rte_flow_classifier can have up to RTE_FLOW_CLASSIFY_TABLE_MAX
(32) classifier tables, but the existing flow_classify examples only adds
a single table for the L4 5-tuple.

When dealing with tcp flows, we frequently want to add ACLs and filters
to filter based on the state of the TCP connection, e.g., by looking at
the tcp flags field.

So we enhance flow_classify to add an additional acl table for
tcp 5-tuples. If the input-file-parser detects a filter for a tcp flow with
a non-wildcard argument for tcp_flags, the IP4_TCP_5TUPLE table is used
by flow_classify.

The above line should not be added to the commit message.
~/dpdk/devtools/check-git-log.sh -1
Wrong tag:
        v2 fixes:  typo fixes, get_tcp_flags returns -EINVAL

The check-git-log.sh  script is in your dpdk checkout, best to run this script before sending patches

If you want comment on the patch updates (optional), it can be added here after the --- line

This patch contains changes to the flow_classify example and the flow_classify  library.
It needs to be split in two, a patch for the flow_classify example and a patch for the flow classify library.

I think it would be better to rename TCP_FLAGS_FIELD to FLAGS_FIELD_TCP in line with the other values.

apologies, I was not aware of this, I will fix and send out v3. 
I did run check-git-log.sh but before editing the vX updates.

thanks for your patience.

Hi Sowmini,

Looking closer at this patchset, I am not sure that a second ACL table is needed.
The existing ACL table handles UDP, TCP and SCP, however it is not processing the TCP flags.
I think it just needs to be modified to process the TCP flags.
Could you take another look to see if the above proposed solution will work for you.

Regards,

Bernard.

I'm not sure it would. As I pointed out in the original rfc  at
https://inbox.dpdk.org/dev/cover.1578936382.git.sowmini.varadhan@microsoft.com/

we need to add a key for the 8 bit flags, but the multibit
trie lookup moves in steps of 4 bytes.

However, it has admittedly been a while since I tinkereed with this,
and I can give it a shot and get back.

Thanks
