Want to be able to build with RTE_SCHED_RED enabled but
allow disabling RED on a per-queue basis at runtime.

RED is disabled unless min/max thresholds set.

I agree with this approach of leaving RED as a library option that can be enabled/disabled at build-time in order to avoid any performance penalty when RED is not required.

On enqueue side (when RED is enabled):
-Makes sense to avoid the RED processing when RED is not enabled for the current queue;

On dequeue side (when RED is enabled):
-Not sure what's best when RED is not enabled for the current queue: whether to go ahead anyway and apply the timestamp, as it is harmless (but might trigger a cache miss) or check (which might trigger cache miss). Makes sense to go with the former option, which is implemented by this patch.
