The only question is can we see a reason to share action between transfer and 
non transfer?

I don't see such a reason and I think it can improve the code. So I vote to add it.


In any case, you are missing the rte_flow rst update.
I can see that the rst also misses the ingress bits, can you please also 
create a fix for those?

Thanks,
Ori
