When there is no enough segments for a packet in in-order
mergeable Rx path, we should free the whole mbuf chain instead
of just the last segment.

I would write instead:

"
we should free the whole mbuf chain instead of just recycling the last 
segment.
"

Because what was done before the patch it to refill the VQ with the last
segment. With your patch, the full chain is freed, then the refill is
done afterwards.

Do you agree?

Other than that:
