[NET] ifb: set separate lockdep classes for queue locks

[   10.536424] =======================================================
[   10.536424] [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
[   10.536424] 2.6.25-rc3-devel #3
[   10.536424] -------------------------------------------------------
[   10.536424] swapper/0 is trying to acquire lock:
[   10.536424]  (&dev->queue_lock){-+..}, at: [<c0299b4a>]
dev_queue_xmit+0x175/0x2f3
[   10.536424]
[   10.536424] but task is already holding lock:
[   10.536424]  (&p->tcfc_lock){-+..}, at: [<f8a67154>] tcf_mirred+0x20/0x178
[act_mirred]
[   10.536424]
[   10.536424] which lock already depends on the new lock.

lockdep warns of locking order while using ifb with sch_ingress and
act_mirred: ingress_lock, tcfc_lock, queue_lock (usually queue_lock
is at the beginning). This patch is only to tell lockdep that ifb is
a different device (e.g. from eth) and has its own pair of queue
locks. (This warning is a false-positive in common scenario of using
ifb; yet there are possible situations, when this order could be
dangerous; lockdep should warn in such a case.) (With suggestions by
David S. Miller)
