This is the core function to put the packet pointer into the hw ring
buffer, it is very performance critical, and since the sq->stats now is
a pointer we want to avoid two ptr de-references (sq->stats-
>tx_pacets); we read the sq->stats once and provide it all the way down
to lower level functions.
