I have a board very similar to this on which I am going to test.

Interesting, do you know why?

I was thinking about something like that, indeed. DSA knows everything
about the tagger: its overhead, whether it's a tail tag or not. The xmit
callback of the tagger should only be there to populate the tag where it
needs to be. But reallocation, padding, etc etc, should all be dealt
with by the common DSA xmit procedure. We want the taggers to be simple
and reuse as much logic as possible, not to be bloated.
