Subject: [PATCH v2 6/6] igb: avoid transmit queue timeout in xdp path

From: Sven Auhagen <sven.auhagen@...eatech.de>

Since we share the transmit queue with the slow path,
it is possible that we run into a transmit queue timeout.
This will reset the queue.
This happens under high load when the fast path is using the
transmit queue pretty much exclusively.

By setting the transmit queues trans_start variable to jiffies
in the two xdp xmit functions we avoid the timeout.
