Subject: [PATCH 4.20 087/352] sunvdc: Do not spin in an infinite loop when vio_ldc_send() returns EAGAIN

4.20-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

[ Upstream commit a11f6ca9aef989b56cd31ff4ee2af4fb31a172ec ]

__vdc_tx_trigger should only loop on EAGAIN a finite
number of times.

See commit adddc32d6fde ("sunvnet: Do not spin in an
infinite loop when vio_ldc_send() returns EAGAIN") for detail.
