> Membership library is an extension and generalization of a traditional filter
> (for example Bloom Filter and cuckoo filter) structure.
> In general, the Membership library is a data structure that provides a "set-
> summary" and responds to set-membership queries of whether a certain
> element belongs to a set(s). A membership test for an element will return
> the set this element belongs to or not-found if the element is never inserted
> into the set-summary.
> The results of the membership test are not 100% accurate. Certain false
> positive or false negative probability could exist. However, comparing to a
> "full-blown" complete list of elements, a "set-summary"
> is memory efficient and fast on lookup.
> This patch adds the main API definition.
