Uggg WFT is the driver doing that for?

I'd guess that the two byte pad is there so that a 4 byte aligned
frame is still 4 byte aligned when the 14 byte ethernet header is added.
So instead of copying the entire frame the MAC header should be built
(or rebuilt?) two bytes further from the actual data.
