Before "line 2004: dev_kfree_skb_any(tx_skb->skb); ",

"

                 nv_disable_irq(dev);
                 nv_napi_disable(dev);
                 netif_tx_lock_bh(dev);
                 netif_addr_lock(dev);
                 spin_lock(&np->lock);
                 /* stop engines */
                 nv_stop_rxtx(dev);   <---this stop rxtx
                 nv_txrx_reset(dev);
"

In this case, does nv_start_xmit or nv_start_xmit_optimized still work well?
