In the case of S2M queues, the receiver synchronizes with the sender
(i.e. informs of the packets it has received) using ring->tail.
Hence, the sender does not need to update last_tail.

In the case of M2S queues, the receiver uses last_tail to
keep track of the descriptors it has received. The
sender is not required to update the last_tail. Updating
the last_tail makes it a shared variable between the
transmitter and receiver affecting the performance.
