MR btree len is a constant during Rx replenish.
Moved retrieve of the value out of loop to reduce data loads.
Slight performance uplift was measured on N1SDP.

Hi, Ruifeng

Could we go further and implement loop inside the conditional?
Like this:
if (mlx5_mr_btree_len(&rxq->mr_ctrl.cache_bh) > 1) {
	for (i = 0; i < n; ++i) {
		void *buf_addr = elts[i]->buf_addr;

		wq[i].addr = rte_cpu_to_be_64((uintptr_t)buf_addr +
					      RTE_PKTMBUF_HEADROOM);
		wq[i].lkey = mlx5_rx_mb2mr(rxq, elts[i]);
	}
} else {
	for (i = 0; i < n; ++i) {
		void *buf_addr = elts[i]->buf_addr;

		wq[i].addr = rte_cpu_to_be_64((uintptr_t)buf_addr +
					      RTE_PKTMBUF_HEADROOM);
	}
}
What do you think?
Also,  we should check the performance on other archs is not affected.

With best regards,
Slava

Agree. Loop inside the conditional should be more efficient.

I will also test on x86 platform that I have.
