We arrive at the end of the values in packet type tunnel types,
and there is another pending patch that needs another tunnel type.

As there is already a RTE_PTYPE_TUNNEL_ESP, what would you think about
trying to reuse it, and differentiate IP/ESP from IP/UDP/ESP by using
the L4 layer type (unknown vs udp)? Or maybe add RTE_PTYPE_L4_NONE.

It is sensible, because it can be considered as an API change for
current users of RTE_PTYPE_TUNNEL_ESP. I don't really know how this
type is used by applications.

I think it is time to start thinking about how the packet_type
mbuf API can evolve to solve this issue.

By the way, the update of *rte_get_ptype_tunnel_name() is missing.
