net/mlx5e: Support TC encapsulation offloads with upper devices

When tunneling is used, some virtualizations systems set the (mlx5e) uplink
device to be stacked under upper devices such as bridge or ovs internal
port, where the VTEP IP address used for the encapsulation is set on
that upper device.

In order to support such use-cases, we also deal with a setup where the
egress mirred device isn't representing a port on the HW e-switch to where
the ingress device belongs. We use eswitch service function which returns
the uplink and set it as the egress device of the tc encap rule.

Fixes: a54e20b4
