Adds an ndo_ll_poll method and the code that supports it.
This method can be used by low latency applications to busy-poll
Ethernet device queues directly from the socket code.
sysctl_net_ll_poll controls how many microseconds to poll.
Default is zero (disabled).
Individual protocol support will be added by subsequent patches.

Are you sure this version was tested by Willem ?

I hadn't tested the latest revisions, indeed. Am testing this one right now.

Sorry, I missed that.
