Subject: [PATCH net-next 2/3] sunvnet: Do not spin in an infinite loop when
 vio_ldc_send() returns EAGAIN


ldc_rx -> vnet_rx -> .. -> vnet_walk_rx->vnet_send_ack should not
spin into an infinite loop waiting  EAGAIN to lift.

The sender could have sent us a burst, and gone to lunch without
doing any more ldc_read()'s. That should not cause the receiver to
loop infinitely till soft-lockup kicks in.

Similarly __vnet_tx_trigger should only loop on EAGAIN a finite
number of times. The caller (vnet_start_xmit()) already has code
to reset the dring state and bail on errors from __vnet_tx_trigger
