Please apply and forward upstream. This patch requires the previous

The recent set of low-waterark patches for the spider result in a

This patch moves this to a "bottom half" aka work queue, so that
the code runs in a normal kernel context. Curiously, this seems to result in a performance boost of about 5% for large packets.
