Subject[patch 03/20] sky2: restore workarounds for lost interrupts
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@linux-foundation.org>
Backport of commit c59697e06058fc2361da8cefcfa3de85ac107582

This patch restores a couple of workarounds from 2.6.16:
* restart transmit moderation timer in case it expires during IRQ routine
* default to having 10 HZ watchdog timer.
At this point it more important not to hang than to worry about the
power cost.
