doc: add octeontx platform guide
This commit adds a section to the docs listing the platform guide for the PMDs. It then adds the octeontx platform guide to the listed platform devices. Patch also removes platform specific duplicate setup information from eventdev/octeontx.rst, nics/octeontx.rst and update to plaform/octeontx.rst.

-
-1. **OCTEONTX Linux kernel PF driver for Network acceleration HW blocks**
-
- The OCTEONTX Linux kernel drivers (including the required PF driver for the

-
-3. **Rootfile system**
-
- Any *aarch64* supporting filesystem can be used. For example,
- Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily) or 16.04 LTS (Xenial) userland which can be obtained

-
- As an alternative method, SSOVF PMD can also be executed using images provided

+OCTEONTX Board Support Package
+==============================
+
+This doc has information about steps to setup octeontx platform
+and information about common offload hw block drivers of
+**Cavium OCTEONTX** SoC family.
+
+
+More information about SoC can be found at `Cavium, Inc Official Website
+<http://www.cavium.com/OCTEON-TX_ARM_Processors.html>`_.
+
+Common Offload HW Block Drivers
+-------------------------------
+
+1. **Eventdev Driver**
+ See :doc: `../eventdevs/octeontx.rst` for octeontx ssovf eventdev driver
+ information.
+
+Steps To Setup Platform
+-----------------------
+
+There are three main pre-prerequisites for setting up Platform drivers on
+OCTEONTX compatible board:
+
+1. **OCTEONTX Linux kernel PF driver for Network acceleration HW blocks**
+
+ The OCTEONTX Linux kernel drivers (includes the required PF driver for the
+ Platform drivers) are available on Github at `octeontx-kmod <https://github.com/caviumnetworks/octeontx-kmod>`_
+ along with build, install and dpdk usage instructions.
+
+2. **ARM64 Tool Chain**
+
+ For example, the *aarch64* Linaro Toolchain, which can be obtained from
+ `here <https://releases.linaro.org/components/toolchain/binaries/4.9-2017.01/aarch64-linux-gnu>`_.
+
+3. **Rootfile system**
+
+ Any *aarch64* supporting filesystem can be used. For example,
+ Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily) or 16.04 LTS (Xenial) userland which can be obtained
+ from `<http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-base/releases/16.04/release/ubuntu-base-16.04.1-base-arm64.tar.gz>`_.
