net/rtmac: vnic: fix non-rt signal overflow

rtdm_nrtsig_pend() is based on ipipe_post_root_work(), which keeps a
copy of every request descriptor internally until it is consumed by
the secondary mode handler. Triggering rtdm_nrtsig_pend() every time a
packet is relayed from the stack to the VNIC may cause such request
buffer to overflow under pressure.

To address this issue, trigger the non-rt signal only when the RX
queue transitions from empty to non-empty state as a result of
enqueuing the next skb.
