NAME

       ei_tx_err -  handle transmitter error

SYNOPSIS

       void ei_tx_err (struct net_device *dev);

ARGUMENTS

       dev          network device which threw the exception

DESCRIPTION

       A  transmitter error has happened. Most likely excess collisions (which
       is a fairly normal condition). If the error is one where  the  Tx  will
       have  been  aborted, we try and send another one right away, instead of
       letting the failed packet sit and collect dust in the Tx  buffer.  This
       is a much better solution as it avoids kernel based Tx timeouts, and an
       unnecessary card reset.

       Called with lock held.
