network driver changes:
- qeth: return -EINVAL if an skb is too large.
- qeth: don't call netif_stop_queue after cable pull. Drop the
packets instead.

You should be using netif_carrier_{on,off} properly, and not drop the packets. When (if) link comes back, you requeue the packets to hardware (or hypervisor or whatever). Your dev->stop() should stop operation and clean up anything left in your send/receive {rings | buffers}.
