net: decreasing real_num_tx_queues needs to flush qdisc
Reducing real_num_queues needs to flush the qdisc otherwise skbs with queue_mappings greater then real_num_tx_queues can be sent to the underlying driver. The flow for this is, dev_queue_xmit() dev_pick_tx() skb_tx_hash() => hash using real_num_tx_queues skb_set_queue_mapping() ... qdisc_enqueue_root() => enqueue skb on txq from hash ... dev->real_num_tx_queues -= n ... sch_direct_xmit() dev_hard_start_xmit() ndo_start_xmit(skb,dev) => skb queue set with old hash skbs are enqueued on the qdisc with skb->queue_mapping set 0 < queue_mappings < real_num_tx_queues. When the driver decreases real_num_tx_queues skb's may be dequeued from the qdisc with a queue_mapping greater then real_num_tx_queues. This fixes a case in ixgbe where this was occurring with DCB and FCoE. Because the driver is using queue_mapping to map skbs to tx descriptor rings we can potentially map skbs to rings that no longer exist.
