net/mlx5e: Fix blue flame quota logic
Blue flame is a latency enhancement feature that allows the driver to write the packet data directly to the NIC's registers thus making the read of the packet data from host memory redundant. We maintain a quota for the blue flame which is reloaded whenever we identify that the hardware is processing send requests and processes them fast enough so by the time we post the next send request it was able to process all the pending ones. This indicates that the hardware is capable of processing more blue flame requests efficiently. The blue flame quota is decremented whenever we send using blue flame. The current code erroneously clears the budget if we did not use blue flame for the current post send operation and we fix it here.
