net/mlx5: support default RSS key as null
Applications which add RSS rules must supply an RSS key and length. If an application is only interested in default RSS operation it should not care about the exact RSS key. By setting the key to NULL - the PMD will use the default RSS key. In addition if the application does not care about the RSS type it can set it to 0 and the PMD will use the default type (ETH_RSS_IP). Signed-off-by: Ophir Munk <> Acked-by: Shahaf Shuler <>
