net: nps_enet: Disable interrupts before napi reschedule
Since NAPI works by shutting down event interrupts when theres work and turning them on when theres none, the net driver must make sure that interrupts are disabled when it reschedules polling. By calling napi_reschedule, the driver switches to polling mode, therefor there should be no interrupt interference. Any received packets will be handled in nps_enet_poll by polling the HW indication of received packet until all packets are handled.
