    Subject[PATCH net-next v3 8/9] forcedeth: stats updated with a deferrable timer
    Date
    Mark stats timer as deferrable: punctuality in waking the stats timer
    callback doesn't matter much, as it is responsible only to avoid
    integer wraparound.

    We need at least 1 other timer to fire within 17s (fully loaded 1Gbps)
    to avoid wrap-arounds. Desired period is still 10s.
