I think this was nice, because we can see number of frames received by
this cpu, before giving them to another cpu.

Maybe we want a new counter ?

	__get_cpu_var(netdev_rx_stat).inpackets++;

This is a bit expensive, and could be a queue->rx_stat.dropped++
if netdev_rx_stat is moved inside queue structure.

This is wrong I believe... I prefer to add a new column, s->inpackets ?
