Moreover, there might be implied a lot of various limitations - offsets might be not supported at all or
have some requirements for alignment, the similar requirements might be applied to segment size
(say, ask for some granularity). Currently it is not obvious how to report all nuances, and it is supposed
the limitations of this kind must be documented in PMD chapter. As for mlx5 - it has no special
limitations besides common requirements to the regular segments.

One more point - the split feature might be considered as just one of possible cases of using
these segment descriptions, other features might impose other (unknown for now) limitations.
If we see some of the features of such kind or other PMDs adopts the split feature - we'll try to find
the common root and consider the way how to report it.

With best regards, Slava
