Almost :o)

Without the patch it may happen in mainline. Once the napi Tx completion
function checks if queueing is stopped before enabling it, it should not
happen though. The patch should fix the race where queuing is not enabled
as well.

That being said, I would welcome a pony^W^W some testing on a multi-core
system with lots of Tx and enough irq from a different (non via-rhine)
source to starve the softirq processing.
