I think the directory name should be the company, not the architecture here, so make
it drivers/net/ethernet/tilera/tilegx.c instead.

MODULE_AUTHOR is normally a real person with an email address.

I think you need to drop the _t postfix here, which presumably comes
from converting it from a typedef.

When you need to keep a list or array of device structures in a driver, you're
usually doing something very wrong. The convention is to just pass the pointer
around to where you need it.

This is almost certainly wrong: The type returned by __pa is a phys_addr_t,
which cannot be dereferenced like a pointer. On normal drivers, you would
use dma_map_single()/dma_unmap_single() to get a token that can get
passed into a dma engine. From what I can tell, this device is directly mapped,
while your PCI uses an IOMMU, so that would require two different
implementations of dma mapping operations.

This looks very wrong: why would you put the pointer to the skb into the
skb itself?

Try to use archicture independent names for flush operations like this
to make it more readable. I assume this should be smp_wmb()?

Why to you open-code the ip checksum functions here? Normally the stack takes
care of this by calling the functions you already provide in
arch/tile/lib/checksum.c
