This patch removes the call to dev_kfree_skb() when the atm device is busy.
Calling dev_kfree_skb() causes heavy packet loss then the device is under
heavy load, the more correct behavior should be to stop the upper layers,
then when the lower device can queue packets again wake the upper layers.

Applied to net-next-2.6, but Chas your email client corrupted
