> moxart_mac_start_xmit() doesn't care where tx_tail is, tx_head can
> catch and pass tx_tail, which is bad because moxart_tx_finished()
> isn't guaranteed to catch up on freeing resources from tx_tail.
> Add a check in moxart_mac_start_xmit() stopping the queue at the
> end of the circular buffer. Also add a check in moxart_tx_finished()
> waking the queue if the buffer has TX_WAKE_THRESHOLD or more
> free descriptors.
> While we're at it, move spin_lock_irq() to happen before our
> descriptor pointer is assigned in moxart_mac_start_xmit().
