ixgbe: Fix potential memory leak/driver panic issue while setting up Tx & Rx ring parameters

While setting up the ring parameters using ethtool the driver can
panic or leak memory as ixgbe_open tries to setup tx & rx resources.
The updated logic will use ixgbe_down/up after successful allocation of
tx & rx resources
