Subject[patch 04/71] ixgbe: initialize interrupt throttle rate
2.6.26-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Andy Gospodarek <andy@greyhouse.net>
commit 15e79f24b60c4b0bf8019423bda4e03a576b02f2 upstream

This commit dropped the setting of the default interrupt throttle rate.

ixgbe: Introduce MSI-X queue vector code

The following patch adds it back. Without this the default value of 0
causes the performance of this card to be awful. Restoring these to the
default values yields much better performance.

This regression has been around since 2.6.25.
