Subject: Re: [PATCH net RFC] net: Clear IFF_TX_SKB_SHARING for all Ethernet
 devices using skb_padto

Sorry. I spotted some errors in this patch. Some drivers use "ndev" as
the variable name but I mistakenly used "dev".

It was very hard for me to attempt fixing. There are too many drivers
that need to be fixed. Fixing them is very time-consuming and may also
be error-prone. So I think it may be better to just remove
IFF_TX_SKB_SHARING from ether_setup. Drivers that support this feature
should add this flag by themselves. This also makes our code cleaner.
