My last method which I mentioned yesterday is similar to
this one. The difference is that I would re-use the rx
buffers, so I have to add them to the list for re-submitting,
not alwayes allocate new one.

Although one rx buffer could contain many packets, I don't
think the whole size of the rx buffer is alwayes used.
Therefore, I re-use the rx buffers to avoid allocating
the 16K bytes rx buffer alwayes. This also makes sure that
I always have the buffers to submit without allocating new

If you could accept this, I would modify this patch by
this way.

Best Regards,
