net: remove LLTX in atl2 driver
When NETIF_F_LLTX is set, the atlx driver will use a private lock. But in recent kernels this implementation seems redundant and can cause problems where AF_PACKET sees things twice. Since NETIF_F_LLTX is marked as deprecated and shouldn't be used in new driver, this patch removes NETIF_F_LLTX and adds a mmiowb before sending packet. I have tested this driver on a Eee PC. It works well. Signed-off-by: Kevin Hao <kexin.hao@windriver.com> Acked-by: Jay Cliburn <jacliburn@bellsouth.net> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
