Subject[patch 11/20] r8169: avoid needless NAPI poll scheduling
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Francois Romieu <romieu@fr.zoreil.com>

Theory : though needless, it should not have hurt.
Practice: it does not play nice with DEBUG_SHIRQ + LOCKDEP + UP
(see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3D242572).


The patch makes sense in itself but I should dig why it has an effect
on #242572 (assuming that NAPI do not change in a near future).

Patch in mainline as 313b0305b5a1e7e0fb39383befbf79558ce68a9c.
Backported to 2.6.22-stable by Thomas M=FCller.
