Subject: RE: [PATCH RFC 18/30] net: fec: remove inappropriate calls around

>just before dropping the xmit lock.  This prevents the watchdog firing.

>Lastly, always call napi_enable() after the device has been reattached in
>the resume path so that we know that the transmit packet processing is
>already in an enabled state, so we don't call netif_wake_queue() while
