For the xmass tree part, Yangbo, better move the priv and txbd declarations
inside the scope of the if() {} block where they are actually used, i.e.:

		if (unlikely(tx_swbd->check_wb)) {
			struct enetc_ndev_priv *priv = netdev_priv(ndev);
			union enetc_tx_bd *txbd;
			[...]
		}

Absolutely, somehow I missed this.  I guess the intention was to be able to support multiple
if() blocks for the writeback case (W flag set) but the code is much better off without the goto.

This ndev_priv variable was intended to gather flags for all the active h/w related
features, i.e. keeping count of what h/w offloads are enabled for the current device
(at least for those that don't have already a netdev_features_t flag).
I wouldn't waste an int for 2 timestamp flags, I'd rather have a more generic name.
Maybe active_offloads then?

Anyway, the name can be changed later too, when other offloads will be added.

Thanks,
Claudiu
