The packet mbuf API should be used as a replacement.
+* mbuf: The opaque ``mbuf->hash.sched`` field will be updated to support generic
+ definition in line with the ethdev TM and MTR APIs. Currently, this field
+ is defined in librte_sched in a non-generic way. The new generic format
+ will contain: queue ID, traffic class, color. Field size will not change.
* 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.
