[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2] net/i40evf: fix casting between structs

Casting from structs which lay out data in typed members
to structs which have flat memory buffers, will cause
problems if the alignment of the former isn't as expected.
This patch removes the casting between structs.

Fixes: ae19955e7c86 ("i40evf: support reporting PF reset")
