PKT_RX_QINQ_STRIPPED, that are better described. The old flags and
their behavior will be kept until 17.08 and will be removed in 17.11.
+* mempool: The following will be modified in 17.11:
+ - ``rte_mempool_xmem_size`` and ``rte_mempool_xmem_usage`` need to know
+ the mempool flag status so adding new param rte_mempool in those API.
+ - Removing __rte_unused int flag param from ``rte_mempool_generic_put``
+ and ``rte_mempool_generic_get`` API.
+ - ``rte_mempool`` flags data type will changed from int to
+ unsigned int.
* ethdev: Tx offloads will no longer be enabled by default in 17.11.
Instead, the ``rte_eth_txmode`` structure will be extended with
bit field to enable each Tx offload.
