Yes, IF my patch is correct, ETHER_ALIGN should also be removed. But, I
1. What is ETHER_ALIGN, and why ETHER_ALIGN is used here.
2. Whether amd64 needs whole VGE_FIXUP_RX or not.
So, I can't say "my patch is correct", yet. I'll test vge without

VGE_FIXUP_RX. So, VGE_FIXUP_RX itself should remain.)
