Yeah, I just discovered that myself.  I'm wondering

1) why we do that in that function?
2) If it needs to be removed entirely, or moved to after the

3) If the call to netif_carrier_off also needs similar attention.

I can whip up a patch to remove those calls or move them after the
register, but I don't want to do that without knowing which one is
