``rte_memzone`` member ``memseg_id`` will no longer serve any useful purpose
and will be removed.
+* eal: a new set of mbuf mempool ops name APIs for user, platform and best
+ mempool names have been defined in ``rte_mbuf`` in v18.02. The uses of
+ ``rte_eal_mbuf_default_mempool_ops`` shall be replaced by
+ ``rte_mbuf_best_mempool_ops``.
+ The following function is now redundant and it is target to be deprecated
+ in 18.05:
+ - ``rte_eal_mbuf_default_mempool_ops``
* ethdev: a new Tx and Rx offload API was introduced on 17.11.
In the new API, offloads are divided into per-port and per-queue offloads.
Offloads are disabled by default and enabled per application request.
