The IXGBE_ALLOW_RELAXED_ORDER will enable Relaxed Ordering (RO) which allows
transactions that do not have any order of completion requirements to
complete more efficiently compare to the Stricted Ordering (SO) for ixgbe
net card. Some architecture will see high write-to-memory performance when RO is
enabled on the data transactions just like the SPARC did.

The aarch64 could both support Relaxed Ordering (RO) and Stricted Ordering (SO),
so enable this config could get much more better performance, didn't see any
adverse effects.
