SubjectRe: [patch] acenic driver update
You would think it would be easier to maintain a separate 2.2.x and
2.4.x version of acenic.c at this point :)

nope, you don't need that. if you are start_xmit, and you didn't stop
the queue yourself, there's no need to start it, and definitely no need
to wake...

you can probably remove 'tx_full' as well, as it is usually redundant to
tbusy/netif_{start,stop}_queue.
