This is struct rte_cryptodev_ops, which is AFAIK, not part of public API.
So not sure, why do you consider it as ABI breakage?

Dummy variable for what?
If you are talking about sym_cpu_process - we just added it into rte_cryptodev_ops, instead of 
' struct rte_cryptodev' instead.
That way we avoid any ABI breakage without introducing any churn in rte_cryptodev itself , see above.
