> If a VIF has been ready for rx_stall_timeout (60s by default) and an
> Rx ring is drained of all requests an Rx stall will be incorrectly
> detected.  When this occurs and the guest Rx queue is empty, the Rx
> ring's event index will not be set and the frontend will not raise an
> event when new requests are placed on the ring, permanently stalling
> the VIF.
> This is a regression introduced by eb1723a29b9a7 (xen-netback:
> refactor guest rx).
> Fix this by reinstating the setting of queue->last_rx_time when
> placing a packet onto the guest Rx ring.
