ok. I'll try add lock-less push/pop operations and use them for single-port

I'm not sure I how :( The DMA channels are shared, while net_device TX queues are separate.
I've thought - hence there is 8 TX DMA channels it should be possible to use qdisc,
like mqprio to segregate traffic between ports and TX DMA channels in which case no
blocking on tx dma locks should happen in .xmit().

Thank you.
