In general, I am in favor of
	- avoiding redundancy in API
	- have more specific functions in API
So yes, no need to keep a field for rte_eth_dev_configure()
if the same can be done with rte_eth_dev_set_mtu().

If we can manage without this (strange) offload flag,
I am for dropping it.

Let's keep this first notice in 20.11 to show the direction.

We can update or add more notices during next year.
