Subject: [PATCH 3/5] mv643xx_eth: shrink default receive and transmit queue sizes

Since the size of the receive queue is directly related to the data
cache footprint of the driver (between refilling a receive ring entry
with a fresh skb and receiving a packet in that entry, queue_size - 1
other skbs will have been touched), shrink the default receive queue
size to a saner number of entries, as 400 is definite overkill for
almost all workloads.

While we are at it, trim the default transmit queue size a bit as well.
