Subject: RE: [PATCH 1/7] : e1000 Fix possible causing oops of net_rx_action

I tried two types of patches for oops and ifconfig down hang for e1000 first.
Just blowing netif_running up is not best solution I think, it makes ifconfig down hang at least for e1000.
I would like to listen to the others suggestions courteously, please enlighten me :-)

The first:
- if !netif_running, stop receiving process, up to 64 (e1000) packets in the queue would be dropped.

The second:
- if !netif_running, receive up to weight - 1 packets, one packets in the queue can be dropped.
