Basically, your driver will now queue up to 1,000 packets onto
this tx_queue list, because that is what tx_queue_len will be
for alloc_etherdev() allocated network devices.

In my previous reply to you about this patch, I asked you to
quantify and study the effects of using a limit of 60. I said
that 60 might be too large.

You've responded by removing the limit completely, which is exactly
the opposite of what I've asked you to do. Why did you do this?

This patch series is still not in a state where I can apply it,
