[ Jeff and co., this is basically the kind of patch I want
  to see eventually for the Intel drivers too... ]

Alexey, please try this patch:

atl1: Do not wake queue before queue has been started.

Based upon a bug report by Alexey Dobriyan.

Packet flow during link state events should not be done by
waking and stopping the TX queue anyways, that is handled
transparently by netif_carrier_{on,off}().

So, remove the netif_{wake,stop}_queue() calls in the link
check code, and add the necessary netif_start_queue() call
to atl1_up().
