If we don't return NETDEV_TX_BUSY but NETDEV_TX_OK, we must handle it
differently.

Well, like for "read_reg" etc, I think it's clear that it's a
device-specific function/ops:

	cdev->read_reg
	cdev->clear_interrupt

And the same here:

Ah, right! I was also surprised to get that warning. The kernel is full
of bool's, but well, we should make "checkpatch" happy (and Linus).
