Hello,

Chelsio T62100-LP-CR with net_cxgbe PMD driver on DPDK 19.11 does not report missed / HW dropped packets.

This is a reproduction of the issue using testpmd. 

Summary of the logs following :

Sending 1921244426 128-byte UDP packets through a switch to T62100-LP-CR. Verifying all packets were correctly sent to
device under test. Observing the xstats counters, packets received by the NIC (1000419065) are less than packets sent to it by the switch (1921244426), but no missed / dropped packets are reported.

I have looked at the HW register maps on DPDK, Linux and FreeBSD chelsio drivers, and apparently the only place
HW dropped packets on the RX path are recorded is through the A_MPS_STAT_RX_BG_x_MAC_DROP_FRAME registers. Getting
some debugging printfs in, all four A_MPS_STAT_RX_BG_x_MAC_DROP_FRAME registers come out zeroed during RX loss periods.

Setup :

Traffic generator ----> switch [et54/1] -> [et49/1] ----> [port0] DUT

The switch unconditionally relays all traffic from traffic generator to DUT.

Traffic Generator:

TX 1921244426 pkt 61.43 Mpps, 74.69 Gbps, 519.68 fps, 0 (0.000000%) oerrors, time elapsed 31 seconds

Switch stats: (showing that all packets received from traffic generator were succesfully sent to DUT)
