Thank you very much for the effort! I'm personally out of ideas for a
real fix that would avoid regressions.

To be more exaustive this are the sources of overhead, as far as I can
observe them with perf:

- contention on q->state, in __netif_schedule()
- execution of net_tx_action() when there are no packet to be served
