net: fix qemu_can_send_packet logic

If any of the clients is not ready to receive (ie it has a can_receive
callback and can_receive() returns false), we don't want to start
sending, else this client may miss/discard the packet.

I got this behaviour with the following setup :
the emulated machine is using an USB-ethernet adapter, it is connected
to the network using SLIRP and I'm dumping the traffic in a .pcap file.
As per the following command line :
-net nic,model=usb,vlan=1 -net user,vlan=1 -net dump,vlan=1,file=/tmp/pkt.pcap
Every time that two packets are coming in a row from the host, the
usb-net code will receive the first one, then returns 0 to can_receive
call since it has a 1 packet long queue. But as the dump code is always
ready to receive, qemu_can_send_packet will return true and the next
packet will discard the previous one in the usb-net code.
