Hi Jeff,

The first part of the patch removes the !netif_queue_stopped(dev).
It opens the race discussed a while ago between Stephen hemminger and 
David Miller:
http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=113383224512427&w=2

The second part of the patch breaks the current usage of txq_stopped and 
the logic that stops and restarts the Tx queue.

Cheers,
Divy
