Subject: [PATCH 3/11 RESEND] cxgb3 - use immediate data for offload Tx

From: Divy Le Ray <divy@...lsio.com>

Send small TX_DATA work requests as immediate data even when
there are fragments. this avoids doing multiple DMAs for 
small fragmented packets. 
The driver already implements this optimization for small
contiguous packets.
