The ConnectX NICs can transfer data from the host memory with two
approaches: provide the pointer to the data buffer, or do data inline
- copy the data to the transmit descriptor (WQE) entirely or only the
part of data. In some configurations the NIC hardware requires the
minimal data to be inline in the descriptor to operate correctly. And
there is the special dynamic flag to hint PMD not to inline the data
(for example, if buffer is located on some other device - storage or
GPU) on per packet basis.

If there was a packet with length shorter than the minimal inline data
length requested by the NIC hardware and the no-inline hint was set
the PMD tried to inline the packet with minimal required length
instead of actual packet's one.  This patch adds the missed length
check into no-inline hint handling branch.

Fixes: cacb44a09962 ("net/mlx5: add no-inline Tx flag")
