macvlan: schedule bc_work even if error
While enqueueing a broadcast skb to port->bc_queue, schedule_work() is called to add port->bc_work, which processes the skbs in bc_queue, to "events" work queue. If port->bc_queue is full, the skb will be discarded and schedule_work(&port->bc_work) won't be called. However, if port->bc_queue is full and port->bc_work is not running or pending, port->bc_queue will keep full and schedule_work() won't be called any more, and all broadcast skbs to macvlan will be discarded. This case can happen: macvlan_process_broadcast() is the pending function of port->bc_work, it moves all the skbs in port->bc_queue to the queue "list", and processes the skbs in "list". During this, new skbs will keep being added to port->bc_queue in macvlan_broadcast_enqueue(), and port->bc_queue may already full when macvlan_process_broadcast() return. This may happen, especially when there are a lot of real-time threads and the process is preempted. Fix this by calling schedule_work(&port->bc_work) even if port->bc_work is full in macvlan_broadcast_enqueue().
