I named it flow action type update because we use the same flag to represent two different
flow types i.e. RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_FLAG and RTE_FLOW_ACTION_TYPE_MARK.

I'm not so sure about the name RX_OFFLOAD_FLOW_MARK too because mbuf might have ol_flags
marked for ACTION_TYPE_FLAG. Let me know your thoughts on this. 

I will modify the name once we come to an agreement.

Ack, will fix in v2.
