commit b3a7093f50ab968ffe0b9d2663cf41b81cc5431f
Author: Sepherosa Ziehau <sephe@dragonflybsd.org>

    Add ifpoll, which support hardware TX/RX queues based polling.
    The implementation is mainly based on the polling(4) code.
    Difference to the polling(4):
    - Instead of registering one polling handler for both TX/RX and status,
      drivers could register multiple polling handlers for TX/RX polling
      handler on different CPU based on its own needs.  And drivers could
      register one status check handler, which is always polled on CPU0.
    - TX could be polled at lower frequency than RX; normally we don't
      need high frequency polling for TX, but for RX, we may need relative
      higher polling frequency.
    - Better serializer integration.
    ifnet changes:
    - ifnet.if_qpoll is added, which should be implemented by driver which
      supports ifpoll.
    - IFF_NPOLLING is added to indicate that the driver is using ifpoll.
    - Add 'npolling' and '-npolling'; they are used to turn on/off ifpoll
      on the specified interface.
    - emx(4) is converted to use the ifpoll.  Coexistance of ifpoll and
      polling(4) in one driver requires extra effort in driver itself;
      drop polling(4) support in emx(4) for now.
    IFPOLL_ENABLE kernel option is added, which is not enabled by default.
