Current pmd_perf_autotest() in continuous mode tries
to enqueue MAX_TRAFFIC_BURST completely before starting
the test. Some drivers cannot accept complete
MAX_TRAFFIC_BURST even though rx+tx desc count can fit it.
This patch changes behaviour to stop enqueuing after few
retries.

Which driver is failing to do so?
Why it cannot enqueue 32 packets?

If there is a real limitation, there will be issues in more places
than this test program.
I feel it should be addressed either in the driver or at ethdev level.

Octeontx2 driver is failing to enqueue because hardware buffers are full before test.
pmd_perf_autotest() in continuous mode tries to enqueue MAX_TRAFFIC_BURST (2048)
before starting the test.

Hardware buffers are full because number of number of descriptors in continuous mode 
Is less than MAX_TRAFFIC_BURST, so if enque fails , there is no way hardware can drop the
Packets . pmd_per_autotest application evaluates performance after enqueueing packets
Initially.

Aren't you stopping the support of octeontx2?
