I think you misunderstood this question. I am asking to
change the name ETH_RSS_L3_PRE32 to RTE_ETH_RSS_L3_PRE32

Having some space left is not a reason to waste it :)
If I understand well, there is no standard for this API.
You are assigning some bits to some usage.
I don't find it generic and flexible enough.
If you want to limit the size of the match, we should have
a generic syntax to choose how many bits of the IPv6 address
are taken into account for RSS. Or maybe an IPv6 mask.

My thought is to discuss how to fit this need in future
and avoid adding few bits of temporary workaround.
API definition is serious and we must avoid temporary half solutions.
