Improved Packet RX/Drop Rate Calculation

We improved the way we calculate packet received (RX) and packet drop (DR) rates. RX+DR should now be exactly the total of what the box is seeing. RX is the actual Snort processing rate and DR is the rate of packets Snort is not able to process either because the OS drops them or Snort drops them.
