Subject[114/139] e1000e: stop cleaning when we reach tx_ring->next_to_use
2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Terry Loftin <terry.loftin@hp.com>

commit dac876193cd79ced36d0462749ea47c05844fb49 upstream.

Tx ring buffers after tx_ring->next_to_use are volatile and could
change, possibly causing a crash. Stop cleaning when we hit
tx_ring->next_to_use.
