Subject[PATCH 2/3] netpoll: rework skb transmit queue
Change netpoll to use a skb queue for transmit. This solves problems
where there are two tx paths that can cause things to get out of order
and different semantics when netconsole output goes through fast and
slow paths.

The only user of the drop hook was netconsole, and I fixed that path.
This probably breaks netdump, but that is out of tree, so it needs
to fix itself.
