This series adds XDP support in mlx5e driver.
This includes the use cases: XDP_DROP, XDP_PASS, and XDP_TX.

Single stream performance tests show 16.5 Mpps for XDP_DROP,
and 12.4 Mpps for XDP_TX, with nice scalability for multiple streams/rings.

This rate of XDP_DROP is lower than the 32 Mpps we got in previous
implementation, when Striding RQ was used.

We moved to non-Striding RQ, as some XDP_TX requirements (like headroom,
packet-per-page) cannot be satisfied with the current Striding RQ HW,
and we decided to fully support both DROP/TX.

Few directions are considered in order to enable the faster rate for XDP_DROP,
e.g a possibility for users to enable Striding RQ so they choose optimized
XDP_DROP on the price of partial XDP_TX functionality, or some HW changes.
