Good idea, thanks! I added just a little comment.


I think this should be pkt_len, which is the cumulative size of a multi-descriptor packet, whereas len is the size of the last descriptor only.

fixed partial length on tx added inline comments.

Nice catch, thanks! I changed it to pi.ipi_len where pkg_len is stored to avoid the dependency on an internal variable.
