3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

From: Wei Liu <wei.l...@citrix.com>


[ Upstream commit dfa523ae9f2542bee4cddaea37b3be3e157f6e6b ]

Add a flag to indicate if a queue is rate-limited. Test the flag in
NAPI poll handler and avoid rescheduling the queue if true, otherwise
we risk locking up the host. The rescheduling will be done in the
timer callback function.
