Hi Dave and Doug,

This series includes shared code updates for mlx5 core driver for both
netdev and rdma subsystems.  This series should be pulled to both
trees so we can continue netdev and rdma specific submissions separately.

For more information please see tag log below.

The series doesn't cause any conflict with the latest mlx5 rc fixes.

  - Drop sparse fixes patch
  - Updated commit message of "net/mlx5: Add has_tag to mlx5_flow_act"
  - Add const to  static mlx5_flow_cmd structs where needed.



The following changes since commit ec9c2fb8ceb5b514c4820f732537cb2982de0620:

  IB/mlx5: Disable self loopback check when in switchdev mode (2018-02-23

  net/mlx5: Flow steering cmd interface should get the fte when deleting 
(2018-03-06 22:20:15 -0800)

mlx5-updates-2018-02-28-1 (IPSec-1)

This series consists of some fixes and refactors for the mlx5 drivers,
especially around the FPGA and flow steering. Most of them are trivial
fixes and are the foundation of allowing IPSec acceleration from user-space.

We use flow steering abstraction in order to accelerate IPSec packets.
When a user creates a steering rule, [s]he states that we'll carry an
encrypt/decrypt flow action (using a specific configuration) for every
packet which conforms to a certain match. Since currently offloading these
packets is done via FPGA, we'll add another set of flow steering ops.
These ops will execute the required FPGA commands and then call the
standard steering ops.

In order to achieve this, we need that the commands will get all the
required information. Therefore, we pass the fte object and embed the
flow_action struct inside the fte. In addition, we add the shim layer
that will later be used for alternating between the standard and the
FPGA steering commands.

Some fixes, like " net/mlx5e: Wait for FPGA command responses with a timeout"
are very relevant for user-space applications, as these applications could
be killed, but we still want to wait for the FPGA and update the kernel's
