doc: add mlx5 Direct Verbs flow engine limitation
Would be good to add also a code which disable the dv_flow_en the user requested. However such support will need to use new netlink command to query the switchdev mode from the underlying kernel. Considering the current 18.11 release is close to RC3, only a documentation is added. Signed-off-by: Shahaf Shuler <>
