Bug Description

[Impact]

 * As usual we want to backport stable releases of DPDK.
    Groovy got the latest 19.11 series being at
     dpdk | 19.11.3-1 | groovy | source

    So it is about time to prepare the other LTS updates via MRE-SRU.
    Focal 19.11.1 -> 19.11.3
      - retain libbpf delta (not available in focal)
      - retain ipn3ke delta (would be new focal feature)
      - drop security changes which are included in 19.11.3

    Bionic 17.11.9-0ubuntu18.04.2 -> 17.11.10
      - this is the last 17.11 LTS version by upstream

 * This update includes bugfixes following the SRU policy
   exception defined at :
   https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates/DPDK.

[Major Changes]
 * No new features added, just a bugfix releases:
   http://doc.dpdk.org/guides-17.11/rel_notes/release_17_11.html#id13
   http://doc.dpdk.org/guides-19.11/rel_notes/release_19_11.html#id4
   http://doc.dpdk.org/guides-19.11/rel_notes/release_19_11.html#id2

[Test Plan]

* See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates/DPDK#SRU_TestVerify
  I'll run those and attach a log.
  In addition I'll ask a few peers to evaluate it as well before we
  push it to SRU.

[Regression Potential]

Upstream performs extensive testing before release, giving us a high degree of confidence in the general case. There problems are most likely to manifest in Ubuntu-specific integrations, such as in relation to the versions of dependencies available and other packaging-specific matters.

[ Other info ]
Eoan would be the only other relase left, it has an 18.11.x series and already is at the rather up to date 18.11.5. But since it is the only 18.11.x left for Ubuntu and Eoan about to go into extended support I'm not preparing an SRU for Eoan this time.

I got made awre of

which will go on top of 19.11.3 backports to avoid a regression in Focal.
Groovy will move with 19.11.x release s as they appear.
