doc: announce crypto device type enumeration removal
Refer to RFC patch - cryptodev: remove crypto device type enumeration It is planned to remove device type enumeration rte_cryptodev_type from library to remove the coupling between crypto PMD and the librte_cryptodev. In this case following stuctures will be changed: rte_cryptodev_session, rte_cryptodev_sym_session, rte_cryptodev_info, rte_cryptodev. It is planned to change the function rte_cryptodev_count_devtype(). The function prototype doesn’t clearly show the operation. >From next release 17.08 the dev_type will be changed to driver_id. So the function name will change to rte_cryptodev_device_count_by_driver().
