virtio_net: Add schedule check to napi_enable call
Under harsh testing conditions, including low memory, the guest would stop receiving packets. With this patch applied we no longer see any problems in the driver while performing these tests for extended periods of time. Make sure napi is scheduled subsequent to each napi_enable.
