Simple and vector are different tx code paths. If vector
is selected, change logging from:
PMD: ixgbe_set_tx_function(): Using simple tx code path
PMD: ixgbe_set_tx_function(): Vector tx enabled.

to:
PMD: ixgbe_set_tx_function(): Using vector tx code path

or, if simple selected:
PMD: ixgbe_set_tx_function(): Using simple tx code path

The dangling else in the #ifdef makes readability difficult,
so resolving in way that seems most readable.

Hi Kevin,

can I suggest a slight alternative here that might help make things easier.
Instead of printing the message as we pick the code path, why not have a "logmsg"
pointer variable that is assigned in the code, and then print out the log path
at the end.

This would have a number of advantages:
1. there are no issues with changing our mind, so we can assign one path type, 
and then later change it to something different without cluttering up the debug
output with the history of our code's flow.
2. it means that you don't have a problem with smaller else legs as you can
easily do multiple assignments in the one line using a comma as:
	dev->tx_pkt_burst = ixgbe_xmit_pkts_simple, logmsg = "Using simple ...";

Regards,
/Bruce

While I like approach with logmsg, please avoid commas here.
It will make this peace of code even more hard to read (at least for me).

Sure, it's a matter of taste. I'd much prefer a single line with commas to the
awkwardness above trying to manage braces around an ifdef. I'll leave it to 
Kevin to see what he comes up with. :-)

yeah, sure. I agree with changing for 1. I also agree with Konstantin re commas.
The code under the dangling else is aligned incorrectly/correctly depending on
whether the #ifdef is true or not, so I think adding multiple statements with {}
now will make it obvious for the next person who modifies.

Final alternative is to have a switch statement at the end of the block for
printing based on what the final function selection is. That way there is only
a single assignment needed and no awkward braces. :-)
