Please do not usurp vnet_tx_timeout() to handle queue waking.

It is hooked up to netdev_ops->ndo_tx_timeout() which is invoked when
the qdisc watchdog triggers after dev->watchdog_timeout time elapses
after the queue is stopped without a subsequent wake.

This method is a therefore executed after a hard timeout, meaning that
the device should probably be reset, whereas maybe_tx_wakeup() is
normal processing meant to drive the engine of TX flow control.

In the context of sunvnet, vnet_tx_timeout() should probably reset the
LDC channel(s) of the unresponsive peer(s).

Thanks.
