For i40e vector Tx path, if tx_offload is set as FAST_FREE_MBUF mode,
no mbuf fast free operations are executed. To fix this, add mbuf fast
free mode for vector Tx path.

Furthermore, for i40e vector Tx path, if implement FAST_FREE_MBUF mode,
it means per-queue all mbufs come from the same mempool and have
refcnt = 1. Thus we can use bulk free of the buffers when mbuf fast free
mode is enabled.

For vector path in arm platform:
In n1sdp, performance is improved by 18.4%;
In thunderx2, performance is improved by 23%.

For vector path in x86 platform:
No performance changes.
