As far as I can see this is not to to extend flow director. But driver
uses this struct and adding a new feature into driver requires update in
I guess idea was for new filter functionalities PMD should use rte_flow,
that is the new shiny method we have, I see the point here. But I don't
see the point of making these structs under use completely immutable.
