What if ret is -EINVAL or -ENOSPC? Looks like we need free the skb in 
this case also.

The caller - netvsc_start_xmit() do this also, may be handle this in 
caller is better since netvsc_start_xmit() is the only user that tries 
to send a skb?

btw, I find during netvsc_start_xmit(), ret was change to -ENOSPC when 
queue_sends[q_idx] < 1. But non of the caller check -ENOSPC in fact?
