Subject: [PATCH] drivers/net: using spin_lock_irqsave() in net_send_packet()

spin_unlock_irq() will enable interrupt in net_send_packet(),
this patch changes it to spin_lock_irqsave/spin_lock_irqrestore,
so that it doesn't enable interrupts when already disabled,
and netconsole would work properly over cs89x0/isa-skeleton.

Call trace:
netconsole write_msg()
{
 ...
 -> spin_lock_irqsave();
        -> netpoll_send_udp()
          -> netpoll_send_skb()
            -> net_send_packet()
              ->...

 -> spin_unlock_irqrestore();
 ...
}
