This feature touches many main parts,
- new config item for 'rte_eth_dev_configure()'
- a new offload flag
- new capability reporting for 'rte_eth_dev_info_get()'

The feature doesn't look very mainstream to touch all these main parts and add 
complexity to them, which will affect almost all users.

And has some inconsistencies, like configuration is done via config struct, but 
capability is returned as bit-wise.
Or I think config option taken into account only if offload is requested has a 
chance to confuse people in both app and driver end.

What do you think having two specific APIs to get_capabilities and set drop config?
The responsibility of those APIs will be clear and narrowed down, which makes it 
harder to make it wrong.


Also it is an ABI break as it is and needs to wait 21.11, and even after that it 
has a potential to cause more ABI breaks, like trying to add a new error type to 
drop will need to wait 22.11 ..., but if we can have them as separate APIs we 
can have them as experimental without waiting next LTS.
