It just occured to me that this doesn't work properly with qdiscs
that have multiple classes since they all don't properly maintain
the TCQ_F_THROTTLED flag. They set it on dequeue when no active
class is willing to give out packets, but when enqueueing to a
non-active class (thereby activating it) it is still set even though
we don't know if that class could be dequeued.

So this updated patch unsets the TCQ_F_THROTTLED flag whenever we
activate a class. Additionally it removes the unsetting of
TCQ_F_THROTTLED on successful dequeue since we're now guaranteed
that it was not set before.
