[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2 1/4] net/virtio: fix segmented packet issue in in-order 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.

Also, head segment data_len field is wrongly summed with
the length of all the segments of the chain.

This patch fixes both the mbuf chaining and head segment's
data_len field.
