Hi all,

I found that there is no way to configure pool behavior, for example accept
broadcasts, in  VMDQ mode. For SR-IOV there is rte_eth_dev_set_vf_rxmode(),
but according to datasheet it doesn't matter whether the 82599's virtual
environment operates in IOV mode or in Next Generation VMDq mode.

So, we have 2 paths: either make single function by removing from
checking pool(or vf) number against dev_info.max_vfs
or make similar function for vmdq mode.

What is the best?
