Not an issue in this case. It is expected that the thread that calls
this creator will also be the thread that clocks the library (i.e.
calling rte_stats_bitrate_calc()), and that one instance handles all
ports. The memory block is not accessed outside of rte_stats_bitrate_calc().

It was based on feedback regarding roundoffs when doing integer divides.
Something about rounding to nearest integer rather than towards zero if
I remember correctly..

Since this is a public structure, removed the _s prefix in this case.
Looking over the coding guidelines I can't see anything explicitly
against the notation, but existing structures have not used it.
