I'm afraid not.

This TX coalescing mechanism is designed to handle the situation where
guest's MAX_SKB_FRAGS > host's MAX_SKB_FRAGS.

To a further extent, I think you might need to add mechanism for backend
to tell frontend how many frags it can handle, and frontend needs to do
necessary coalescing. Until then you can safely use this new mapping
scheme.
