The macro DEBUG was doing nothing if not compiled with
RTE_LIBRTE_MLX4_DEBUG.

As it is not used in the data path, it can be always enabled at
compilation time. Then it can be enabled at runtime with:
	--log-level pmd.net.mlx4:debug

+1 to change, but why 'RTE_LIBRTE_MLX4_DEBUG' exists at first place?

It seems is is used both for data and control path, can you extend the patch for:
1- Remove #ifdef from control path
2- Replace with 'RTE_ETHDEV_DEBUG_RX' & 'RTE_ETHDEV_DEBUG_TX' for data path,
    please see: https://patches.dpdk.org/project/dpdk/list/?series=15738
3- Remove 'RTE_LIBRTE_MLX4_DEBUG' completely, if not removed document it in the
    driver documentation as supported config file

To me using ETHDEV config macro in PMDs is new,
and I think it is out of scope for this patch.
But yes I agree it would be a nice improvement.
Matan, please could you do this change during next month?
