According to the usbnet.c, it would make sure to submit the
number of min(10, RX_QLEN(dev)) rx buffers. If there are
not enough rx buffers, it schedule a tasklet for next try.

The brief flow is as following.
1. Call open().
- schedule a tasklet.
2. Tasklet is called.
if (dev->rxq.qlen < RX_QLEN(dev)) {
- submit rx buffers util the number of
min(10, RX_QLEN(dev)). If the error
occurs, break the loop.
- If the dev->rxq.qlen < RX_QLEN(dev),
schedule the tasklet.

Best Regards,
