OK I see what the problem is. The loopback device is statically
allocated, so it doesn't have any room for the subqueues reserved.

The easiest fix would be to use egress_subqueue[1] in struct
net_device, but I think that may cause warnings with newer gccs
when using a constant index that is > 0. OTOH using constant
indices doesn't seem to make much sense for the subqueue array.

Arkadiusz, does this patch fix the problem?
