Subject: [PATCH net-next 5/6] smc: no consumer update in tasklet context

The SMC protocol requires to send a separate consumer cursor update,
if it cannot be piggybacked to updates of the producer cursor.
When receiving a blocked signal from the sender, this update is sent
already in tasklet context. In addition consumer cursor updates are
sent after data receival.
Sending of cursor updates is controlled by sequence numbers.
Assuming receiving stray messages the receiver drops updates with older
sequence numbers than an already received cursor update with a higher
sequence number.
Sending consumer cursor updates in tasklet context may result in
wrong order sends and its corresponding drops at the receiver. Since
it is sufficient to send consumer cursor updates once the data is
received, this patch gets rid of the consumer cursor update in tasklet
context to guarantee in-sequence arrival of cursor updates.
