Subject[064/146] sch_sfq: avoid giving spurious NET_XMIT_CN signals
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------


From: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 8efa885406359af300d46910642b50ca82c0fe47 ]

While chasing a possible net_sched bug, I found that IP fragments have
litle chance to pass a congestioned SFQ qdisc :

- Say SFQ qdisc is full because one flow is non responsive.
- ip_fragment() wants to send two fragments belonging to an idle flow.
- sfq_enqueue() queues first packet, but see queue limit reached :
- sfq_enqueue() drops one packet from 'big consumer', and returns
NET_XMIT_CN.
- ip_fragment() cancel remaining fragments.

This patch restores fairness, making sure we return NET_XMIT_CN only if
we dropped a packet from the same flow.
