... aaand yes, I've just discovered that TXEOL indeed can occur before
the descriptor(s) in the queue have been TXed and the TX status has
been written back. It just signals the MAC has hit the end of the TX
list for that hardware queue.

Grr. That software driven TX interrupt coalescing hack.. subtly wrong. :(
