I am not talking about API/ABI breakage, that part is OK.
With this check, if the application requested LRO offload but not provided
'max_lro_pkt_size' value, device configuration will fail.

Can there be a case application is good with whatever the PMD can support as max?

Of course I can see the updates Matan, my point is "What happens if PMD doesn't
provide 'max_lro_pkt_size'",
1) There is no check for it right, so it is acceptable?
2) Are we making this filed mandatory to provide for PMDs, it is easy to make
new fields mandatory for PMDs but is this really necessary?

If application doesn't care the value, as it has been till now, and not provided
explicit 'max_lro_pkt_size', why not ethdev level use the value provided by PMD
instead of failing?
