Ahh, I see.  In short (at least for the ti(4) driver), you're running the
transmit and receive routines until they run without processing any
packets.  So you catch any packets that came into the receive rings while
the transmit routine was running, etc.

Or rather you're waiting for a lull in packet transmission and reception to
exit the interrupt handler.

Does this have any noticeable effect on performance?
