Yes

Not exact wording here and in the title.
We should try to convey the idea that the basic queue stats
are not automatically converted from the array to some xstats.
Something like RTE_ETH_DEV_NO_AUTOFILL_QUEUE_XSTATS

Or we can define the opposite flag and set it by default
in all drivers which fill the basic queue stats.
I suggest RTE_ETH_DEV_AUTOFILL_QUEUE_XSTATS
