Thanks for splitting this up. It makes it a lot easier to review.

The names suggest these two functions do the same thing. So it would
be nice if the parameter naming and structure names where
similar. Maybe consider renaming struct wx_hw to txgbe_adaptor? And
wxhw to adaptor? Then the two drivers would look more like each
other. When they look like each other it then becomes easier to see
identical code and move it into the library.

You can do this as a follow up series. Please submit these patches
once net-dev reopens.
