In these cases, skb is freed in netvsc_start_xmit().

When the packet is sent out normally, we frees it in netvsc_send() if it's
copied to send-buffer. The free is done in netvsc_send(), because the copy
is also in this function. If it's not copied, it will be freed in another
function -- netvsc_xmit_completion().

netvsc_start_xmit() only does free skb in error case.

In this case, we don't request re-send, so set ret to a value other than
-EAGAIN. It's handled in the same way as errors != -EAGAIN, so we don't
need to check this value specifically.
