The issue as below:

sendp(Ether()/IP()/Raw('x' * 1500), iface="enp24s0f1")
---------------------- Forward statistics for port 0 ----------------------
RX-packets: 1 RX-dropped: 0 RX-total: 1
TX-packets: 0 TX-dropped: 0 TX-total: 0
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Although we didn't really got the packet, but the statistic indicates a packet has been received successfully.
We can add above example to commit log in V2.

We are not sure whether the packets counted by RXERR2 also will be counted by "Rx-packets".
So in this patch we only consider RXERR1 and fix the issue mentioned above.

Here offsetof(struct i40e_pf, rx_err1) - offsetof(struct i40e_pf, stats) may be a negative value.

I will update it in v2.
