Flag SENDING_PACKETS must be set last.
When it is set before SEND_FOREVER flag, Tx lcores start to call
pktgen_send_pkts. But as current_tx_count is 0 and SEND_FOREVER
is not yet set, SENDING_PACKETS will be cleared.
This causes in some cases that start command will no take effect.

Fixes: f5f901fdf52b ("Update for 1.8 rte_mbuf changes.")
