This almost works. The patch itself is fine, but the device can't
receive packets larger than 2266 bytes (ping -s 2238). After that, I get
rx_fifo errors. I think the RX FIFO is only 2KiB on the 8139cp, isn't
it? So after that it's dependent on how fast it can shovel it out across
the PCI bus. Which is "not fast" in this case.

Transmit appears to be fine.
