Currently the value returned when xstats is NULL of rte_eth_xstats_get()
is not specified, some PMDs (eg. hns3/ipn3ke/mvpp2/axgbe) return zero
while others return the required number of elements.

In this patch, special parameter combinations are restricted:
1. specify that xstats is NULL if and only if n is 0.
2. specify that if n is lower than the required number of elements, the
function returns the required number of elements.
3. specify that if n is zero, the xstats must be NULL, the function
returns the required number of elements.

This patch also makes sure that xstats is NULL if n is lower or equal to
the number of basic stats when invoke driver's ops.
