Dave,
Considering that fixing the HW would take considerable time, I was
wondering if the scheme we use in the nxge driver could be considered as
a workaround. Since the niu driver is already doing skb_orphan as a work
around, what if already transmitted TX buffers are reclaimed
periodically, within dev->hard_start_xmit() ? Then TX_DESC_MARK would
be set if/when available TX descriptor count falls below some watermark.
Disable device TX queue about the time TX_DESC_MARK is set and enable
it within TX interrupt.

Regards
Matheos
