Hi Wei,

When each feature adds its own command testpmd becomes harder to use and
commands get harder to remember.

I am against adding a new set of "[rt]x_offload" high level commands. This a
feature of ports and should be a sub-command of port commands.

>From scope of this patch it is hard to see the problem, but that becomes more
clear as you look into whole testpmd command line.

There is already a command
"port config <port_id> ...",
"show port <...> <port_id>"

so we can re-use them like:
"show port rx_offload_cap <port_id>"

There is already "show port cap <port_id>" to get configured offloads!

"port config <port_id> rx_offload vlan_strip|ipv4_cksum|... on|off"
"port config <port_id> queue <queue_id> rx_offload vlan_strip|ipv4_cksum|... 

or something similar but main idea is lets not create a new command, what do you
