[dpdk-dev] [PATCH 2/3] net/virtio: fix segmented packet issue in mergeable Rx path

After having dequeued a burst of descriptors, there may be a
need to dequeue a few more if the last packet was segmented
and not complete.

When it happens, the extra segments were not properly attached
to the mbuf chain, and so were lost.

This patch fixes the mbuf chaining.
