There is call to netif_stop_queue(ndev) just before this netdev_warn.
I copied below for quick reference.

+	sg_len = skb_shinfo(skb)->nr_frags + 1;
+	if (!CIRC_SPACE(lp->tx_ring_head, lp->tx_ring_tail, TX_BD_NUM_MAX)) {
+		netif_stop_queue(ndev);
+		if (net_ratelimit())
+			netdev_warn(ndev, "TX ring unexpectedly full\n");
+		return NETDEV_TX_BUSY;
+	}

However, I noticed above check doesn't account for all frags - so will 
modify the if check to see if available space is less than sg_len. If yes, then 
stop the queue and return busy , else continue with xmit.
