LACP drops packets for 3s on marker xmit error

When a marker message could not be sent, the error is discarded and the lacp keep dropping transmit packets until the timeout is reached.

A patch is available for review [1], it fixes this issue by clearing the flag when the lacp_xmit_marker function returns an error [2].

Could you please check it out?
