The workaround of BAR0 mapping does not work if BAR0 area is smaller

workaround in recent Linux because VFIO allows MSIX mapping (*).
This fix is just to skip the workaround if BAR0 is smarller than a page.

Minimum support kernel version in DPDK is 3.2, we cannot rely on
functionality provided by the recent kernel versions.
It would be better if you modified the check at line 350 instead (or
added a new check, specifically testing for whether BAR size is less
than page size).
