I uploaded updated if_axe.c/if_axereg.h to the following URL.

That files seem to fix axe(4) hang which were seen on AX88772A
controller. One of most notable changes are removing combining
multiple TX frames in TX path such that this change may result in
sub-optimal performance for most axe(4) controllers. However it
seems that change makes Derrick's controller work without problems.
Generally I prefer driver stability over performance so if this
change also fixes other axe(4) stability issues reported so far, I
want to check in the change.
