    ixgbe: Purge queue on inactive interfaces
    * The transmission code needs to process all queued packets in one way or
      another; if this is not done, the kernel will busy loop
    * Fix a kernel freeze issue when bringing up network interfaces not having
      an active link (cable not plugged...)
