Honestly not too much thinking... well we can always argue by having
Rx last we get more packets per poll. Yes we should test the other
Also still some concern by having the watchdog kicked in e1000_intr
wouldn't e1000_clean feel better?
It would also be interesting to see what happens if we remove the flush when
enable interrupts in e1000_clean?
I've tested the patch that removes some of the PCI-accesses. I think I sent
you some version of it. Anyway it seems to have some effects. If Jason has
