Log Message:
Cleanup of the EPIC/100 driver I did while hacking on the Rhine driver:
* Macroize hardware and software descriptor access (much easier to read).
* Simplify and optimize the transmit loop a bit, and use IFF_OACTIVE as
* Fix a potential race condition in the transmit loop.  This change has
made the driver significantly more stable (almost completely eliminated
the "device timeout" errors that have plagued this driver).
* Implement transmit interrupt pacing.
* Add missing bus_dmamap_sync() calls (on transmit and receive descriptors
and fraglists).  (Draining the write buffer when accessing these structures
may have also contributed to the increased stability of this driver on
the Alpha.)
