Currently if the default qdisc setup/init fails, the device ends up with
qdisc "noop", which causes all TX packets to get dropped.

With the introduction of sysctl net/core/default_qdisc it is possible
to change the default qdisc to be more advanced, which opens for the
possibility that Qdisc_ops->init() can fail.

This patch detect these kind of failures, and choose to fallback to
qdisc "noqueue", which is so simple that its init call will not fail.
This allows the interface to continue functioning.

As this also captures memory failures, which are transient, the
device is not kept in IFF_NO_QUEUE state.  This allows the net_device
to retry to default qdisc assignment.
