Subject: [net-2.6 PATCH 2/2] net: decreasing real_num_tx_queues needs to flush
	qdisc

From: John Fastabend <john.r.fastabend@...el.com>

Reducing real_num_queues needs to flush the qdisc otherwise
skbs with queue_mappings greater then real_num_tx_queues can
be sent to the underlying driver.

The flow for this is,

dev_queue_xmit()
	dev_pick_tx()
		skb_tx_hash()  => hash using real_num_tx_queues
		skb_set_queue_mapping()
	...
	qdisc_enqueue_root() => enqueue skb on txq from hash
...
dev->real_num_tx_queues -= n
...
sch_direct_xmit()
	dev_hard_start_xmit()
		ndo_start_xmit(skb,dev) => skb queue set with old hash

skbs are enqueued on the qdisc with skb->queue_mapping set
0 < queue_mappings < real_num_tx_queues.  When the driver
decreases real_num_tx_queues skb's may be dequeued from the
qdisc with a queue_mapping greater then real_num_tx_queues.

This fixes a case in ixgbe where this was occurring with DCB
and FCoE. Because the driver is using queue_mapping to map
skbs to tx descriptor rings we can potentially map skbs to
rings that no longer exist.
