Note that the systems where the coalescing tweaking if often necessary
are the heavily NUMA'd systems where cpu to device latency can be
huge, like the big SGI ones which is where we had to tweak things in
the tg3 driver in the first place.

On most systems, as you saw mostly in the non-TSO case, the
value choosen for the most part is arbitrary and not critical.
