net: Add a WARN_ON_ONCE() to the transmit timeout function
Arjan van de Ven [Fri, 2 May 2008 23:21:07 +0000 (16:21 -0700)]
WARN_ON_ONCE() gives a stack trace including the full module list.
Having this in the kernel dump for the timeout case in the
generic netdev watchdog will help us see quicker which driver
is involved. It also allows us to collect statistics
and patterns in terms of which drivers have this event occuring.
