Expose FW indication that it supports stateless offloads for IP over IP
tunneled packets per direction. In some HW like ConnectX-4 IP-in-IP
support is not symmetric, it supports steering on the inner header but
it doesn't TX-Checksum and TSO. Add IP-in-IP capability per direction to
cover this case as well.

Note: only if both indications are turned on, the global
tunnel_stateless_ip_over_ip is on too.

What's the use for the rx capability in Linux? We don't have an API to
configure that AFAIK.

Correct, the rx capability bit is used by the driver to allow flow 
steering on the inner header.

Currently we use the global HW capability to enable flow steering on
inner header for RSS. in upcoming patch to net-next we will relax the
dependency on the global capability and will use the dedicated rx cap
instead.
