measurement.

+Timestamp and latency calculation
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+The Latency stats library marks the time in the timestamp field of the
+mbuf for the ingress packets and sets the ``PKT_RX_TIMESTAMP`` flag of
+``ol_flags`` for the mbuf to indicate the marked time as a valid one.
+At the egress, the mbufs with the flag set are considered having valid
+timestamp and are used for the latency calculation.
