forcedeth: Improve stats counters

Rx byte count was off; instead use the hardware's count.  Tx packet
count was counting pre-TSO packets; instead count on-the-wire packets.
Report hardware dropped frame count as rx_fifo_errors.

- The count of transmitted packets reported by the forcedeth driver
  reports pre-TSO (TCP Segmentation Offload) packet counts and not the
  count of the number of packets sent on the wire. This change fixes
  the forcedeth driver to report the correct count. Fixed the code by
  copying the count stored in the NIC H/W to the value reported by the

- Count rx_drop_frame errors as rx_fifo_errors:
  We see a lot of rx_drop_frame errors if we disable the rx bottom-halves
  for too long.  Normally, rx_fifo_errors would be counted in this case.
  The rx_drop_frame error count is private to forcedeth and is not
  reported by ifconfig or sysfs.  The rx_fifo_errors count is currently
  unused in the forcedeth driver.  It is reported by ifconfig as overruns.
  This change reports rx_drop_frame errors as rx_fifo_errors.
