So the name should be ok. 

Indeed we are agreed to add function pointers to struct ravb_hw_info to avoid another level of indirection.

If the concern is related to duplication of data(ie,priv->num_tx_desc vs info->num_tx_desc)
I have a plan to remove priv->num_tx_desc with info->num_tx_desc  later.

Biju
