Only a NIT or two.  You should be setting the last_rx
value.  Also, NETIF_F_HIGHDMA is pointless unless you
support NETIF_F_SG and thus paged SKBs.  skb->data will
never be placed in high memory, only non-linear SKB
scatterlist pages will.

I should probably add a debugging check at device
registration time, like we already do to make sure
NETIF_F_SG is not set unless some checksumming
capability is there as well.
