Testpmd txonly copies the src/dst mac address of the port being
processed to ethernet header structure on the stack for every packet.
Move it outside the loop and reuse it.

 v6 Changes
 - Rebase onto ToT.
 - Split the changes further

 - Fix packet len calculation.

 v3 Changes:
 - Split the patches for easier review. (Thomas)
 - Remove unnecessary assignments to 0. (Bernard)

 v2 Changes:
 - Use bulk ops for fetching segments. (Andrew Rybchenko)
 - Fallback to rte_mbuf_raw_alloc if bulk get fails. (Andrew Rybchenko)
 - Fix mbufs not being freed when there is no more mbufs available for
 segments. (Andrew Rybchenko)

Hi,

The performance issue that we saw in Mellanox is now fixed with latest version:

The issue was with the packet len calculation that was changed in the latest versions > 4:

        pkt->nb_segs = nb_segs;
-       pkt->pkt_len += pkt_len;

        return true;

and now we see ~20% improvement in performance.

Kindest regards,
