Subject: [PATCH] mv643xx_eth: Do not modify struct netdev tx_queue_len

From: Dale Farnsworth <>

This driver erroneously zeros dev->tx_queue_len, since
mp->tx_ring_size has not yet been initialized.  Actually,
the driver shouldn't modify tx_queue_len at all and should
leave the value set by alloc_etherdev(), currently 1000.

Signed-off-by: Dale Farnsworth <>
Jeff, this bug was just reported today, or I would have batched
it with the one I sent you last week.  It's an obvious bugfix,
so I'm not going to hold it in my queue.
