I've read this message 3 times, I don't understand what you're saying.
Could you please rewrite it and add necessary details?

Is tx->channel_number not 0 for devices other than pci11x1x ?
netif_stop_queue() is just an alias for queue 0 IIRC so
you can save all the ifs, most likely?

If this is a fix you should hold off on refactoring like adding the
local variable for adapter to make backports easier.

So the ring size is getting increased? I did not get that from the
commit message at all :S
