DPDK uses dp-packet pool for storing received packets. The pool is
reused by rxq_recv funcions of the DPDK netdevs. The datapath is
capable to modify the packet_type property of packets. For instance
when encapsulated L3 packets are received on a ptap gre port.
In this case the packet_type property of struct dp_packet can be
modified and later the same dp_packet with the modified packet_type
can be reused in the rxq_rec function, so it can contain corrupted

The dp_packet_batch_init_cutlen() in the rxq_recv functions iterates
over dp_packets and sets their cutlen. So I modified this function
to set packet_type to Ethernet for the dp_packets as well. I also
renamed this function because of the added functionality.

The dp_packet_batch_init_cutlen() iterates over batch->count dp_packet.
Therefore setting of batch->count = nb_rx needs to be done before the
former function is invoked. This is an additional fix.
