We always poll tx for socket, this is sub optimal since this will
slightly increase the waitqueue traversing time and more important,
vhost could not benefit from commit 9e641bdcfa4e ("net-tun:
restructure tun_do_read for better sleep/wakeup efficiency") even if
we've stopped rx polling during handle_rx(), tx poll were still left
in the waitqueue.

Pktgen from a remote host to VM over mlx4 on two 2.00GHz Xeon E5-2650
shows 11.7% improvements on rx PPS. (from 1.28Mpps to 1.44Mpps)
