Hello Gerry,

Regarding your question about RAW. Can you specify your use case?
In high level planning we'll consider supporting it in 21.02.

One possible condition to get -ENOTSUP is if DevX is disabled on the NIC, Have you verified DevX is enabled  ?
Please check here :
enable DevX (required by Direct Rules and other features):

With higher log verbosity, you could check in the application initialization if mlx5 PMD returns"DevX is supported" to make sure.
