net/mlx5: handle RSS hash configuration in RSS flow
Add RSS support according to the RSS configuration. A special case is handled, when the pattern does not cover the RSS hash configuration request such as: flow create 0 ingress pattern eth / end actions rss queues 0 1 end / end In such situation with the default configuration of testpmd RSS i.e. IP, it should be converted to 3 Verbs flow to handle correctly the request: 1. IPv4 flow, an extra IPv4 wildcard specification needs to be added in the conversion. 2. IPv6 flow, same as for IPv4. 3. Ethernet followed by any other protocol on which no RSS can be performed and thus the traffic will be redirected to the first queue of the user request. The same kind of issue is handled if the RSS is performed only on UDPv4 or UDPv6 or TCPv*. This does not handle a priority conflict which can occurs if the user adds several colliding flow rules. Currently in the example above, the request is already consuming 2 priorities (1 for IPv4/IPV6 matching rule priority and one for Ethernet matching rule priority + 1).
