ixl(4): Report RX errors as sum of all RX error counters

Description

ixl(4): Report RX errors as sum of all RX error counters

HW keeps track of RX errors using several counters, each for
specific type of errors. Report RX errors to OS as sum
of all those counters: CRC errors, illegal bytes, checksum,
length, undersize, fragment, oversize and jabber errors.

There is no HW counter for frames with invalid L3/L4 checksums
so add a SW one.

Also add a "rx_errors" sysctl with a copy of netstat IERRORS
counter value to make it easier accessible from scripts.
