Heh, didn't want to crash the laptop today. I CC'ed David Miller on that
as he is the main author of the driver.
David: the crash is apparently us doing skb_put of ETH_FRAME_LEN + RX_LEN,
so we tune the skb allocator to the MTU ? It's commented out in my bk
snapshot but then, I may be missing something. Should we change sungem to
use the mtu instead of ETH_FRAME_LEN ?
