Applied, thanks Jesse.

While reviewing this I noticed that the gro cells code goes through all
of the trouble of allocating full per-cpu objects to manage the packet
queuing and processing, but then it uses a full spinlock for protection.

It ought to be sufficient to just block out BH processing or, at worst,
local cpu interrupts, to protect the individual per-cpu cells.
