s390/qeth: improve completion of pending TX buffers
The current design attaches a pending TX buffer to a custom
single-linked list, which is anchored at the buffer's slot on the
TX ring. The buffer is then checked for final completion whenever
this slot is processed during a subsequent TX NAPI poll cycle.
But if there's insufficient traffic on the ring, we might never make
enough progress to get back to this ring slot and discover the pending
buffer's final TX completion. In particular if this missing TX
completion blocks the application from sending further traffic.
So convert the custom single-linked list code to a per-queue list_head,
and scan this list on every TX NAPI cycle.
