I still see a large number of drivers that update dev->last_rx, although its
not all as I look through the list, so something definately seems amiss.

If its not going to be consistently updated, why are still carrying that field
in dev? Are we just waiting on someone to do the janitorial work to remove it?
If so, I can, and I'll fix up the drop monitor in the process, to use a private
timestamp.
