net: remove skb_orphan_try()

Orphaning skb in dev_hard_start_xmit() makes bonding behavior
unfriendly for applications sending big UDP bursts : Once packets
pass the bonding device and come to real device, they might hit a full
qdisc and be dropped. Without orphaning, the sender is automatically
throttled because sk->sk_wmemalloc reaches sk->sk_sndbuf (assuming
sk_sndbuf is not too big)

We could try to defer the orphaning adding another test in
dev_hard_start_xmit(), but all this seems of little gain,
now that BQL tends to make packets more likely to be parked
in Qdisc queues instead of NIC TX ring, in cases where performance
matters.

fc6055a5 net: Introduce skb_orphan_try()
87fd308c net: skb_tx_hash() fix relative to skb_orphan_try()
and removes SKBTX_DRV_NEEDS_SK_REF flag
