> Description of problem:
> The NIC card is not reporting back to the driver the transmitted skbs,
> so they get stuck in the TX ring causing issues with reference
> counters in other kernel components.
> 
> Developed a new Automatic Egress Queue Update firmware facility to slowly tick
> through Egress Queues and send back any outstanding CIDX Updates which are
> laying around.
