Subject: [PATCH] igb_main: mark expected switch fall-through

In preparation to enabling -Wimplicit-fallthrough, mark switch cases
where we are expecting to fall through.

This patch fixes the following warning:

drivers/net/ethernet/intel/igb/igb_main.c: In function ‘__igb_notify_dca’:
drivers/net/ethernet/intel/igb/igb_main.c:6694:6: warning: this statement may fall through [-Wimplicit-fallthrough=]
   if (dca_add_requester(dev) == 0) {
drivers/net/ethernet/intel/igb/igb_main.c:6701:2: note: here

Warning level 3 was used: -Wimplicit-fallthrough=3

Notice that, in this particular case, the code comment is modified
in accordance with what GCC is expecting to find.

This patch is part of the ongoing efforts to enable
