As the fixes of below performance issues on X710 may not be integrated
in latest version of firmware, a workaround in software PMD is needed.
It is to re-configure 3 specific registers after being initialized.
- Cannot achieve line rate on X710.
- Performance reduction when promiscuous mode is disabled.
Note that this workaround can be removed if the fixes are integrated
in the firmware in future.
