Subject: [net 1/2] ixgbe: Prevent u8 wrapping of ITR value to something less than 10us

From: Alexander Duyck <alexander.h.duyck@...ux.intel.com>

There were a couple cases where the ITR value generated via the adaptive
ITR scheme could exceed 126. This resulted in the value becoming either 0
or something less than 10. Switching back and forth between a value less
than 10 and a value greater than 10 can cause issues as certain hardware
features such as RSC to not function well when the ITR value has dropped
that low.
