Seems reasonable to do. Some stats (on two different machines
at least with dummy) on a system with low # of processes:
~80% of the time - we exit the loop because of packet quota
~1% for both need_resched and jiffy
~19% simply because there were less than quota packets

Note: we do use a jiffy check on net_rx_action() but i suspect
we never ever hit it.
