Maybe these NET_XMIT_* values being passed around should be a set of
bits.

They could be composed of base meanings, combined with specific
attributes.

So you could say "NET_XMIT_DROP | __NET_XMIT_NO_DROP_COUNT"

The attributes get masked out by the top-level ->enqueue() caller,
such that the base meanings are the only thing that make their
way up into the stack.

If it's only about communication within the qdisc tree, let's
simply code it that way.
