[dpdk-dev] [PATCH] ixgbe: Add missing rx_mbuf_alloc_failed statistics for vector PMD

The statistics that is reported through the rx_nombuf fields in struct
rte_eth_stats was not set when the vector PMD was used. The statistics
should report the number of mbufs that could _not_ be allocated during
rearm of the RX queue. The non-vector PMD reports it correctly. The
use of either vector PMD or non-vector PMD depends on runtime
configuration. Hence it is possible that a change in configuration
would disable this statistics. To prevent this from happening, the
statistics should be reported by both implementations.
