netdevice: add queue selection fallback handler for ndo_select_queue
Add a new argument for ndo_select_queue() callback that passes a fallback handler. This gets invoked through netdev_pick_tx(); fallback handler is currently __netdev_pick_tx() as most drivers invoke this function within their customized implementation in case for skbs that don't need any special handling. This fallback handler can then be replaced on other call-sites with different queue selection methods (e.g. in packet sockets, pktgen etc). This also has the nice side-effect that __netdev_pick_tx() is then only invoked from netdev_pick_tx() and export of that function to modules can be undone. Suggested-by: David S.
