Ed Czeck Sept. 8, 2020, 7:20 p.m. UTC
Replace behavior with RTE_LIBRTE_ARK_MIN_TX_PKTLEN
with a default value of 0.
Update documentation as needed.

Signed-off-by: Ed Czeck <ed.czeck@atomicrules.com>
---
v7:
  -- add ARK_MIN_TX_PKTLEN to conditional expression
    to avoid compile warning with icc.
  -- restore CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_ARK_PMD doc as requested.
