-Packet processing in classifier

+Classifying the packet
+----------------------
-In ``spp_classifier_mac_do()``, it receives packets from rx port and
-send them to destinations with ``classify_packet()``.
-``classifier_info`` is an argument of ``classify_packet()`` and is used
-to decide the destinations.
+If component type is ``SPPWK_TYPE_CLS``, worker thread behaves as a classifier,
+so component calls ``spp_classifier_mac_do()``. In this function, packets
+from RX port are received with ``sppwk_eth_vlan_rx_burst()`` which is derived
+from ``rte_eth_rx_burst()`` for adding or deleting VLAN tags.
+Received packets are classified with ``classify_packet()``.
