Vincenzo Maffione - Dec. 6, 2018, 4:59 p.m.
This change improves the handling of incomplete multi-slot packets
(e.g. with the NS_MOREFRAG set), by advancing ring->head only on
complete packets. The ring->cur pointer is advanced in any case in
order to acknowledge the kernel and move the wake-up point (thus
avoiding repeated wake-ups).
Also don't be verbose when incomplete packets are found.
