Status goes in ret, before fix status remained -ENOMEM
and was returned from dev_queue_xmit, that is not desired
behaviour - we want to drop packet silently and say
NETDEV_TX_OK(that it was sent).

Return NULL, before the fix we were very lucky that in
dev_queue_xmit, we do not get to kfree_skb_list(-ENOMEM),
as dev_xmit_complete(-ENOMEM) is true =)

In both sch_direct_xmit and dev_queue_xmit we will
never use returned value of dev_hard_start_xmit in
case of fencing so it is safe to return NULL here.
