Are we sure chip doesnt report TUND forever in some situations ?
Should'nt we have a retry limit for each skb ?

Oh well :)

Please read Documentation/SubmittingPatches

1) Should be in "diff -u" form
9) Your patch should be based on latest kernel (preferrably on David net-next-2.6 git tree)

12) Should be Signed-off-by

You said in a previous mail the chip was capable of queueing two frames,
it would be nice to exploit this in driver, since at91 has only one frame
in transmit queue.
