-- V1 change:
  Fix one issue in virtio TX: it needs one more vring descriptor to hold the virtio
  header when transmitting packets, it is used later to determine whether to free
  more entries from used vring.
 
  It fixes failing to transmit any packet with 1 segment in the circumstance of only
  1 descriptor in the vring free list.
 
-- V2 change:
  Refine description, 'vring descriptor' is more accurate than 'vring entry';
  Accordingly update test condition (it needs one more descriptor for virtio header) to
  put packets to transmit queue.

-- V3 change:
  Resolve compilation issue due to mbuf re-structure.
