When using fragments with size 8 and payload larger than 8000, the backlog
might fill up and packets will be dropped, causing the test to fail. This
happens often enough when conntrack is on during the IPv6 test.

As the larger payload in the test is 10000, using a backlog of 1250 allow
the test to run repeatedly without failure. At least a 1000 runs were
possible with no failures, when usually less than 50 runs were good enough
for showing a failure.

As netdev_max_backlog is not a pernet setting, this sets the backlog to
1000 during exit to prevent disturbing following tests.
