[dpdk-dev] [PATCH] examples/ipsec-secgw: fix over MTU packet crash

When sending an encrypted packet which size after encapsulation exceeds
MTU, ipsec-secgw application tries to fragment it. If --reassemble
option has not been set it results with a segmantation fault, because
fragmentation buckets have not been initialized.

Fix crashing by adding extra check: if --ressemble option has not been
set and packet exceeds MTU after encapsulation - drop it.
