#define RX_SCALAR	(1ULL < 0)

...
#define RX_SCATTER ...
#define RX_BULK_ALLOC
#define TX_SCALAR
#define TX_VECTOR_AVX2 ..

struct rte_pkt_burst_info {
	bool per_queue_support; /* Per queue has each rx/tx burst setting */
	uint64_t burst_infos;
};

int
rte_eth_pkt_burst_info_get(uint16_t port_id, bool is_rx, uint16_t queue_id,
		       	struct rte_pkt_burst_info *pbinfo)

Rx/Tx shares the 64 bits definition, but return according to 'is_rx'.
Application can call with 'queue_id = 0' firstly, if the Rx/Tx queue
support queue level burst setting, then 'per_queue_support = true', then
it can iterate to get the burst info with different 'queue_id', of course,
the 'per_queue_support = true' will be returned always.

How about this ?
