 Yes, IF my patch is correct, ETHER_ALIGN should also be removed.  But, I
 don't know:
   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 against amd64 machine, later today.
 (Even if amd64 doesn't need VGE_FIXUP_RX, other architectures still need
 VGE_FIXUP_RX. So, VGE_FIXUP_RX itself should remain.)
