> +	tx_queue->xmit_more_available = true;

I don't understand why you're setting xmit_more_available
unconditionally to true now instead of setting it to 'xmit_more' as
seen by this transmit attempt.  Why would you want to signal
that xmit_more handling might be necessary when you haven't been
given an xmit_more tx request?

If this change is in fact correct, it's something you need to explain
in the commit message.
