Hi Eric,

Thanks for looking at the patch.

What exactly looks buggy to you?

We see with and also without this patch problems in the TX path, it
looks like the netif tx queue is not started again.

I looked at multiple drivers and they look similar in this area.
For example microchip/lan743x_main.c is looking similar to me.

The hardware has two interrupts one for the RX and one for TX complete.

Can you please suggest a driver which uses the NAPI in a good way and is
not very complex.

Hauke
