From: Alexander Duyck <alexander.h.duyck@intel.com>

This change makes it so that we use the length of the packet instead of the
DD status bit to determine if a new descriptor is ready to be processed.
The obvious advantage is that it cuts down on reads as we don't really even
need the DD bit if going from a 0 to a non-zero value on size is enough to
inform us that the packet has been completed.

In addition I have updated the code so that we only reset the Rx descriptor
length for descriptor zero when resetting a ring instead of having to do a
memset with 0 over the entire ring.  By doing this we can save some time on
initialization.
