Message: datapath: avoid deferred execution of recirc actions

Port upstream fix to datapath module. The only notable difference
between this patch and the upstream version is that the value of
ovs_recursion_limit (5 for upstream kernel, 4 for out-of-tree
module) is maintained in this patch.

    openvswitch: avoid deferred execution of recirc actions

    The ovs kernel data path currently defers the execution of all
    recirc actions until stack utilization is at a minimum.
    This is too limiting for some packet forwarding scenarios due to
    the small size of the deferred action FIFO (10 entries). For
    example, broadcast traffic sent out more than 10 ports with
    recirculation results in packet drops when the deferred action
    FIFO becomes full, as reported here:


    Since the current recursion depth is available (it is already tracked
    by the exec_actions_level pcpu variable), we can use it to determine
    whether to execute recirculation actions immediately (safe when
    recursion depth is low) or defer execution until more stack space is

    With this change, the deferred action fifo size becomes a non-issue
    for currently failing scenarios because it is no longer used when
    there are three or fewer recursions through ovs_execute_actions().
