For series,
Reviewed-by: Ferruh Yigit <ferruh.yigit@intel.com>

No performance regression detected on my testing.

I am merging the series to next-net now which helps testing,
but before merging to main repo it will be good to get more
ack and test results (I can squash new tags later).

@Jerin, @Ajit, @Raslan, @Andrew, @Qi, @Honnappa,
Can you please test this set for any possible regression?

Series applied to dpdk-next-net/main, thanks.
