  It is DPDP rte_flow API calling.

DCF needs: 1). virtchnl message is handles by 'dpdk/drivers/common/iavf/', which is the original iavf base code.

> add/delete a switch rule. None of this requires the ice PMD as far as I can tell. This seems like a

DCF needs: 2). add/delete a switch rule.
               rte_flow API --> 'dpdk/drivers/net/ice/ice_switch_filter.c/ice_generic_flow.c' (ice flow framework)
		                     |
                                 `--> 'dpdk/drivers/net/ice/base' ...

So, put it under the ice PMD is the best way.
