I would also have wanted to not have to stop the entire interface but
unfortunately this is not possible.
In order to change which buffer pool is used on which queue I have to
stop the interface (dpni_disable() ) which would flip the link.

I can export the helpers but this would not change the behavior since
the dpaa2_eth_stop() and dpaa2_eth_open() are the exact callbacks
setup for .ndo_stop() and .ndo_open().
