I looked at this earlier when I added patch #4 but I was concerned about
the different semantics.

The netif_wake_subqueue() just returns on a netpoll_trap but the other
netif_tx_wake_queue() actually calls netif_tx_start_queue() for the same
netpoll_trap instance.  Maybe that is OK, but I didn't want to be changing
the behaviour of subtleties in stuff where I am clearly still learning.

Thanks,
Paul.
