When codel wants to drop last packet in ->dequeue() it cannot call
qdisc_tree_reduce_backlog() right away - it will notify parent qdisc
about zero qlen and HTB/HFSC will deactivate class. The same class will
be deactivated second time by caller of ->dequeue(). Currently codel and
fq_codel defer update. This triggers warning in HFSC when it's qlen != 0
but there is no active classes.

This patch update parent queue length immediately: just temporary increase
qlen around qdisc_tree_reduce_backlog() to prevent first class deactivation
if we have skb to return.

This might open another problem in HFSC - now operation peek could fail and
deactivate parent class.

This has been tested by several people and it seems to be working well.
Please make sure this gets merged soon.

Thanks,
