net/rose: fix unbound loop in rose_loopback_timer()

[ Upstream commit 0453c682459583910d611a96de928f4442205493 ]

This patch adds a limit on the number of skbs that fuzzers can queue
into loopback_queue. 1000 packets for rose loopback seems more than enough.

Then, since we now have multiple cpus in most linux hosts,
we also need to limit the number of skbs rose_loopback_timer()
can dequeue at each round.

rose_loopback_queue() can be drop-monitor friendly, calling
consume_skb() or kfree_skb() appropriately.

Finally, use mod_timer() instead of del_timer() + add_timer()
