Subject: [PATCH -next] virtio_net: Avoid loop in virtnet_poll

The loop may exist if vq->broken is true,
virtqueue_get_buf_ctx_packed or virtqueue_get_buf_ctx_split
will return NULL, so virtnet_poll will reschedule napi to
receive packet, it will lead cpu usage(si) to 100%.

call trace as below:
virtnet_poll
	virtnet_receive
		virtqueue_get_buf_ctx
			virtqueue_get_buf_ctx_packed
			virtqueue_get_buf_ctx_split
	virtqueue_napi_complete
		virtqueue_napi_schedule //it will reschedule napi
