According to the usbnet.c, it would make sure to submit the
number of min(10, RX_QLEN(dev)) rx buffers. If there are
not enough rx buffers, it schedule a tasklet for next try.

The brief flow is as following.
1. Call open().
   - schedule a tasklet.
2. Tasklet is called.
   if (dev->rxq.qlen < RX_QLEN(dev)) {
	   - submit rx buffers util the number of
	     min(10, RX_QLEN(dev)). If the error
	     occurs, break the loop.
	   - If the dev->rxq.qlen < RX_QLEN(dev),
	     schedule the tasklet.
   }

Best Regards,
Hayes
