Subject: [PATCH net-next] xen-netfront: mark expected switch fall-through

In preparation to enabling -Wimplicit-fallthrough, mark switch
cases where we are expecting to fall through.

This patch fixes the following warning:

drivers/net/xen-netfront.c: In function ‘netback_changed’:
drivers/net/xen-netfront.c:2038:6: warning: this statement may fall through [-Wimplicit-fallthrough=]
   if (dev->state == XenbusStateClosed)
drivers/net/xen-netfront.c:2041:2: note: here
  case XenbusStateClosing:

Warning level 3 was used: -Wimplicit-fallthrough=3

Notice that, in this particular case, the code comment is modified
in accordance with what GCC is expecting to find.

This patch is part of the ongoing efforts to enable
