packet: account statistics only in tpacket_stats_u
Currently, packet_sock has a struct tpacket_stats stats member for TPACKET_V1 and TPACKET_V2 statistic accounting, and with TPACKET_V3 ``union tpacket_stats_u stats_u'' was introduced, where however only statistics for TPACKET_V3 are held, and when copied to user space, TPACKET_V3 does some hackery and access also tpacket_stats' stats, although everything could have been done within the union itself. Unify accounting within the tpacket_stats_u union so that we can remove 8 bytes from packet_sock that are there unnecessary. Note that even if we switch to TPACKET_V3 and would use non mmap(2)ed option, this still works due to the union with same types + offsets, that are exposed to the user space.
