I agree with Thomas that it is better to split it up.
What I don't understand from the list below is, for example,
why RSS goes before Rx/Tx handling.  Ideally, it should be
no dead code in patches, the driver should be buildable
from patch #1 and subsequent patches should add more
and more functionality which is testable. Of course, it is
not always doable, for example when a base driver should
be added first, but it does not look so in this case.
