Usually the following sequence:
1) rx packet arrives while the isr is running and is processed then.
2) isr runs again and finds no ring entries to process, exits quickly.
3) isr exits before irq line has actually dropped, cpu interrupted again.

Can happen due to cpu store buffer and posted writes (maybe some on
the hme card itself).
