Does !unlikely(...) actually do what we want?

Because it kinda matters here.  We would like to prevent the unlikely
error-handling code from gumming up the interrupt handler's cache
footprint.

To be confident, one could do:

static noinline sis190_tx_pkt_err(...)
{
	if (status & WND)
	...
}


	if (unlikely(status & TxErrMask))
		sis190_tx_pkt_err(...);
