Generic smart NIC offload

Registered by Eyal Lavee on 2018-05-02

There is a wide range of smart/intelligent NICs emerging on the market, implemented using various technologies. These NICs are capable of being programed to perform advanced packet classification and modification operations, allowing to implement flexible packet processing pipelines implementing switching, routing, tunneling, etc.

The proposal is to define a framework and implementation for accelerating vRouter packet processing/forwarding performance by utilizing these capabilities.
