gianfar: Fix race between gfar_error() and gfar_start_xmit()
Anton Vorontsov [Tue, 10 Nov 2009 14:11:08 +0000 (14:11 +0000)]
gfar_error() can arrive at the middle of gfar_start_xmit() processing,
and so it can trigger transfers of BDs that we don't yet expect to
be transmitted.

Fix this by locking the tx queues in gfar_error().
