net: systemport: Fix 64-bit stats deadlock

We can enter a deadlock situation because there is no sufficient protection
when ndo_get_stats64() runs in process context to guard against RX or TX NAPI
contexts running in softirq, this can lead to the following lockdep splat and
actual deadlock was experienced as well with an iperf session in the background
and a while loop doing ifconfig + ethtool.

So just remove the u64_stats_update_begin()/end() pair in ndo_get_stats64()
since it does not appear to be useful for anything. No inconsistency was
observed with either ifconfig or ethtool, global TX counts equal the sum of
per-queue TX counts on a 32-bit architecture.
