This patch fixes a Windows VM compatibility issue in DPDK 16.07 vhost code
which causes the guest to hang once any packets are enqueued when mrg_rxbuf
is turned on by setting the right id and len in the used ring.

As defined in virtio spec 0.95 and 1.0, in each used ring element, id means
index of start of used descriptor chain, and len means total length of the
descriptor chain which was written to. While in 16.07 code, index of the
last descriptor is assigned to id, and the length of the last descriptor is
assigned to len.

How to test?

 1. Start testpmd in the host with a vhost port.

 2. Start a Windows VM image with qemu and connect to the vhost port.

 3. Start io forwarding with tx_first in host testpmd.

For 16.07 code, the Windows VM will hang once any packets are enqueued.
