I'm going to push the revert through just to be safe and I think it's
a good idea to do so because all of those defer accept changes should
be resubmitted as a group for 2.6.27

I don't have time to work on your bug, sorry. Someone else will
have to step forward and help you with it.

FWIW I don't think your TX timeout problem has anything to do with
packet ordering. The TX element of the network device is totally
stateless, but it's hanging under some set of circumstances to the
point where we timeout and reset the hardware to get it going again.
