Sorry, I somehow missed this email earlier. "goto
next_rx_no_prod_no_len" is the most correct fix. The "cpr->rx_bytes
+= len" logic was added about a year ago when we added the DIM
(Dynamic Interrupt Moderation) support and we missed fixing this goto.

I can prepare and send the patch later today. Thanks.
