(use tabs + spaces to indent: code should line up right after the parenthesis)

(premature line breaks imho)

(nevermind, both can be avoided :o) )

You only need a single test in the error loop if you mimic the map loop.
Something like:

Thinking more about it, the driver seems rather unsafe if a failing
start_xmit closely follows a succeeding one. The driver should imho
map frags first *then* plug the remaining hole in the descriptor ring.
Until it does, the implicit assumption about descriptor ownership that
the error unroll loop relies on may be wrong.
