Bruce Richardson Sept. 15, 2014, 4:20 p.m. UTC
Adjust the fast-path code to fix the regression caused by the pool
pointer moving to the second cache line. This change adjusts the
prefetching and also the way in which the mbufs are freed back to the
mempool.
Note: slow-path e.g. path supporting jumbo frames, is still slower, but
is dealt with by a later commit

Updates in V2:
* fixup checkpatch issue

Updates in V3:
* The variable definitions for freeing mbufs now need to be included
whether or not reference counting is enabled.
