Sorry for my misunderstanding.

I think you have to use the normal descriptor and remove the enh_desc
from the platform w/o modifying the driver at all.

The driver will be able to select/configure all automatically (also jumbo).

Let me know.

IIRC, there is a bit difference in case of normal descriptors for
Synopsys databook newer than the 1.91 (I used for testing this mode).
In any case, I remember that, on some platforms, the normal descriptors
have been used w/o problems also on these new chip generations.
