Subject: [net-2.6 PATCH] e1000: do not modify tx_queue_len on link speed change

From: Emil Tantilov <emil.s.tantilov@...el.com>

Previously the driver tweaked txqueuelen to avoid false Tx hang reports
seen at half duplex.  This had the effect of overriding user set values
on link change/reset. Testing shows that adjusting only the timeout
factor is sufficient to prevent Tx hang reports at half duplex.

This patch removes all instances of tx_queue_len in the driver.

Based on e1000e patch by Franco Fichtner <franco@...tsummer.de>
