Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next] r8169: make use of xmit_more

From: Heiner Kallweit <>

> There was a previous attempt to use xmit_more, but the change had to be
> reverted because under load sometimes a transmit timeout occurred [0].
> Maybe this was caused by a missing memory barrier, the new attempt
> keeps the memory barrier before the call to netif_stop_queue like it
> is used by the driver as of today. The new attempt also changes the
> order of some calls as suggested by Eric.
