The hardware needs the size of a WQE in DS units (16 bytes). An empty 
WQE takes 2 DS (for the ctrl and eth segments), and this macro is this 
initial size of an empty WQE (2 DS). As data segments are added to the 
WQE, it grows, and its size in DS also grows.

It should be:

net_prefetchw(wqe->data);

Probably a bad rebase.

We want to prefetch as early as possible (before filling *session).
