[NET]: Use local_irq_{save,restore}() in napi_complete().



Based upon a lockdep report.

Since ->poll() can be invoked from netpoll with interrupts
disabled, we must not unconditionally enable interrupts
in napi_complete().

Instead we must use local_irq_{save,restore}().

Noticed by Peter Zijlstra:

<irqs disabled>

  netpoll_poll()
    poll_napi()
      spin_trylock(&napi->poll_lock)
      poll_one_napi()
        napi->poll() := sky2_poll()
          napi_complete()
            local_irq_disable()
            local_irq_enable() <--- *BUG*

  <irq>
    irq_exit()
      do_softirq()
        net_rx_action()
          spin_lock(&napi->poll_lock) <--- Deadlock!

Because we still hold the lock....
