Agreed, this stuff must be fixed.

You could use skb_copy_and_csum_dev() directly into your buffer, then
pad out the end of the buffer with a memset() call, if necessary.

Actually, no you can't...

You should not be using memcpy() to store things into I/O memory.
That's what memcpy_io() is for.

I think because of all of these special padding cases and the use
of I/O memory instead of DMA, there is no real gain by using
skb_copy_and_csum_dev() in this driver. Just let the network
stack checksum the packet, and use memcpy_io() here which is
the currect interface for copying data into I/O memory.
