[Bug 257511] iflib: enabling promisc under netmap causes lockup when interface is down

I tried commenting out the iflib_stop() call and setting err instead. With this
change, I can collect packets with netmap using the igb, ixgbe, ixl, and ice
drivers whether the interface is up or down. Setting the promiscuous bit after
initializing netmap does not cause a hang if the interface is down. I'm not
sure of the implications of my change, but for my use case it appears to work
