Shit, you're right, sorry about that.  Its odd, I'm running it here, and its not 
causing problems, but thats obviously wrong.  Meelis, please add the above fix
to your test and confirm that it sovles the problem.  If you could keep the
previous patch in place too that would be great, as we should probably add the
dma error checking anyway.

[PATCH] 3c59x: Fix bad offset spec in skb_frag_dma_map

Recently aded the use of skb_frag_dma_map to 3c59x, but didn't realize it
automatically included the frag_offset internally, as well as provided an option
to specify an extra offset in the parameter list.  We need to specify an offset
of 0 in the parameter list to avoid skb corruption that results in lost
