Subject: [RFC PATCH net-next 6/6] net: improve napi threaded config

This commit mainly addresses the threaded config to make the switch
between softirq based and kthread based NAPI processing not require
a device down/up.
It also moves the kthread_create() call to the sysfs handler when user
tries to enable "threaded" on napi, and properly handles the
kthread_create() failure. This is because certain drivers do not have
the napi created and linked to the dev when dev_open() is called. So
the previous implementation does not work properly there.
