The AND is intended. We can only return if cqe==NULL. If cqe!=NULL and we
return anyway, more packets are in the receive queue and the stack won't call poll again
until the next interrupt occurs. Received packets might stay unprocessed for quite
some time in the queue.
In case there are more resources (SKBs) from send side
to be freed we'll do an extra round.
