Prevent dropping ARP packets
JIRA: SAMPLEVNF-152 When system is overloaded, ARP packets were sometimes dropped, as any other packets. This was causing two issues: - The count of TX non dataplane packets was wrong - If many consecutive ARP packets were dropped, the underlying switch might see its ARP timer expiring, causing performance degradation (packets being broadcasted). ARP packets are now always sent as no-drop. Change-Id: I9a86cbf8c4b56a178f86bc789153f1fa49ddf73f Signed-off-by: Xavier Simonart <xavier.simonart@intel.com>
