Subject: [RFC PATCH v2 net-next 1/2] net: dcb: add new pcp selector to app object

Add new PCP selector for the 8021Qaz APP managed object.

The purpose of adding the PCP selector, is to be able to offload
PCP-based queue classification to the 8021Q Priority Code Point table,
see 6.9.3 of IEEE Std 802.1Q-2018.

PCP and DEI is encoded in the protocol field as 8*dei+pcp, so that a
mapping of PCP 2 and DEI 1 to priority 3 is encoded as {255, 10, 3}.

While PCP is not a standard 8021Qaz selector, it seems very convenient
to add it to the APP object, as this is where similar priority mapping
is handled, and it perfectly fits the {selector, protocol, priority}
