3.5.7.9 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Daniel Pieczko <dpieczko@solarflare.com>

commit c2f3b8e3a44b6fe9e36704e30157ebe1a88c08b1 upstream.

The assertion of netif_device_present() at the top of
efx_hard_start_xmit() may fail if we don't do this.
