Thanks. Let me know if this makes sense, or if I'm completely off the mark.

How is this for the commit message:

This resolves the tx hangs observed on the 2600 when running iperf.
This is ensuring the setting of the OWN bit in txdes0 of the
descriptor is visible to other CPUs before updating the pointer. Doing
this provides ordering between start_xmit and tx_complete.

and then I'll put:

        /* Ensure the descriptor config is visible to other CPUs before setting
         * the tx pointer. This ensures ordering against start_xmit which checks
          * the OWN bit before proceeding.
         */

and similar for tx_complete?
