Subject: [PATCH 1/2] staging: et131x: drop packet when error occurs in
 et131x_tx()

Drop packet instead of return NETDEV_TX_BUSY when tx failed.

Signed-off-by: ZHAO Gang <gamerh2o@...il.com>
---

move function send_packet's work directly to et131x_tx(), also make
some changes to improve readability.
