Target release for removal of the legacy API will be defined once most
PMDs have switched to rte_flow.
+* i40e: The default flexible payload configuration which extracts the first 16
+ bytes of the payload for RSS will be deprecated starting from 18.02. If
+ required the previous behavior can be configured using existing flow
+ director APIs. There is no ABI/API break. This change will just remove a
+ global configuration setting and require explicit configuration.
* librte_meter: The API will change to accommodate configuration profiles.
Most of the API functions will have an additional opaque parameter.
