    [BNX2]: Fix panic in bnx2_tx_int().
    There was an off-by-one bug in bnx2_tx_avail().  If the tx ring is
    completely full, the producer and consumer indices may be apart by
    256 even though the ring size is only 255.  One entry in the ring is
    unused and must be properly accounted for when calculating the number
    of available entries.  The bug caused the tx ring entries to be
    reused by mistake, overwriting active entries, and ultimately causing
    it to crash.
    This bug rarely occurs because the tx ring is rarely completely full.
    We always stop when there is less than MAX_SKB_FRAGS entries available
    in the ring.
    Thanks to Corey Kovacs <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> and Andy Gospodarek
    <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> for reporting the problem and helping to collect
    debug information.
